    And he (the electrician) said....Let there be Light!!!

    Another reason to hate the hill scroggin we bought our house from.....

    The pool lights never worked, so I pull one of the bulbs out (electrical wire too short to be removed from the water) and found a bulb was indeed burned out. Replaced it and still no lights.

    Called an electrician to look at getting an estimate on a timer.

    He found a GFI popped, that I did not know was there, also found the light switch for the deep end light behind a bush near the diving board.

    Just a rant about a spinless*^%^%$%$&%& that gave me no passdown concerning the pool.

    BTW the lights look fantastic.

    The electrician did not charge me anything for pressing the switch, and because of that he will get the timer business.

    Actually it refers to one person's view of a narrow minded lemming in reference to a particular type of motorcycle. It is at Black Echo

    Hello val,

    I dare not put lights in my pool and I put flood light on the sunshade, I worry of leak.
    You were saying the GFI pop, that means you drive 110V bulb ?

    If I were to put lights, I will prefer 12V with full isolated transformer, GFI or no GFI ...I am scared. I know a bit of electricity and electrocution worry me a great deal.

    Also ur case reminded me that an extra length cable was prepared/coiled by light installer when my friend decided to use 12V light, same worry...bulb change while pool is full of water.

    Underwater lights is nice though... ...but expensive.
    35,000 GL pool. In Ground. Concrete with all white ceramic tiles. Outdoor but shaded.
    Approx 36 ft by 15 feet. 2HP Hayward Super Pump, Hayward Sand Filter with Zelbrite ( Zeolite ), Hayward Cartridge Filter, Aquamatic Silver+Copper Ionizer ( suspended use since Oct 2008 ), Prozone Ozonator, 2 gram/hr, Analog Flowmeter on pipe
