My pool has two lights, which appear to say American Products (with a non functioning 888 number). They are halogen, 250 watt, 120v. Both of them failed before I bought the house. I took the lights out and found that the ceramic type "socket" for the bulbs have broken.
I assume I will have to replace the entire bulb. Do I have to go to the electrical box and tie some sort of a cable or wire on to the ends of the cable to the light and then just pull on the pool end of the light to snake the cable back through. Then tie the new light cable on to the pull wire and pull it back through.
I assume there is some sort of a grommet in the back of the niche. Is this a really tough pull to get the wire through.
What sort of a pull wire works best. What problems am I likely to run into. What is the concensus about whether I should replace these lights with another halogen; go with LED, or something else.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
