    Is One Light Enough?

    Is one underwater light enough for an 18x33 AGP? Does any one use two lights? What types? Thanks
    27' AGP with 6' deep end (AquaLeader); 3/4 hp, 2 speed pump (Pentair); 22" sand filter (Pentair Sand Dollar); 2 4x20 Solar Bear panels with Goldline control valve

    I had a similar sized IG pool growing up with a single light. Works just fine. There are areas that are lighter than others, but it's all a little light. Certainly enough. If you are looking for a pool that has a uniform brightness -- use more, but most people don't care that much.

    Ask yourself how often you'll use it after the 'cool I have a new pool and I can swing [EDIT: ahem ... "swim"] at night' feelings are gone... then decide if it's worth the extra $$

    Pool: 625 SF Free-Form In-Ground Shotcrete Pool w/7.5' dia spa.(8 jets), 24" raised bond beam (22,500 gal)
    Pentair Equip: Intelliflo VF Pump, MasterTemp 400 Heater, IC40 SWG, Quad DE 100 Filter
    Automation: IntelliTouch i7+3 (+ extender panel), 6 Jandy Automated Valves (S, R, Spa Bypass, Solar, Cleaner, Spillway)

    my pool is 22 x 48 and we have one... it s enough. if you click on my pics, you can see it lit up at night. one more would probably be alright but maybe almost too much.
