So long story short...our builder implied he was putting in a SAM in the pool. A little over a year later with less than 200 hrs on lights, we started losing colors. Called my crappy builder who told me to call pentair (and I did based on the brochure HE gave me for my lights). Pentair said too bad, past 1yr warranty. So life happened and we finally decided to fix the light (only had 3 colors working). My husband pulled light out and it is not a pentair SAM but rather a hayward colorlogic. Called pool store and was told they run almost $1000.00.
So ...what to do? I am beyond mad that we have less than 1000 hrs on this light when the pool store told me they last for A LONG TIME!!!! I am upset that in addition to all the other bs we have had to go through with this builder, we have to shell out all this $$$ for a new light.
What lights do ya'll have? We want a multi color light. Any suggestions? Anyone know where maybe we can get this light for less?
On a side note, although all my paperwork has just LED next to the light description, can I file a complaint with the BBB? I placed a call to builder and will prob. not hear back from him b/c that is how he rolls. But I am ticked b/c what if warranty was different with this light vs. the pentair? And this is just the straw ...although I said that the last time we had pool issues . Thanks!!
