    Anyone have Intellibrite?

    We have to replace our colorlogic pool light. Since it only lasted a year, I am pretty hesitant to get another. Came across intellibrite and looking for feedback.

    Also, if we had a colorlogic, could we easily replace it with intellibrite or is it a hassle?

    Thanks so much!

    Andiejj,

    For what it's worth, I've had bad luck with my Colorlogics too. I have two of them in my 4 year old pool and have had three units go bad, with really quite minimal useage. The housings keep flooding. Only the first was under warranty. The others were on me. @ $400+ each, I think I've bought my last one. Currently I have one working and one not working. I've been thinking about swapping over to the Intellibrites myself, just saving a few $$$ to buy both at the same time.

    I'd also be interested hearing from anyone that might have had the new Intellibrites for over a year.

    Cheers!

    I have had the Pentair Intellibrite 5g's installed for about 15 months with no issues. We use them almost daily and they look great. Knock on wood.

    Re: Anyone have Intellibrite?

    Thanks. So I called pent air asking about switching and to make sure my easy touch would be compatible. I was told our niche was not comparable and I would need to basically rebuild the wall to make niche compatible.Really? I thought I had read about people having Hayward and replacing with pentair. Anyone have any knowledge on this?

    Someone else will need to chime in about the compatibility. I would be ****** if my lights only lasted a year at 400 bucks a pop.
