I'm going to replace my 120v spa light with a color LED from Pentair. I've already got the old light and wiring removed - wasn't easy. I have not purchased the new light yet.
I am considering switching to 12v for safety reasons. I have read other threads that indicate when properly installed, 120v lighting is not a safely issue, but
12v would feel safer to me. I also plan to put a color LED light in the main pool in the future.
I am comfortable working with 120v wiring around the house (when the power is off).
My questions are: Would I need 2 different 12v transformers one for the spa and one for the main pool? I assume the transformer(s) would not mount inside my
EasyTouch panel and that the EasyTouch should be switching the 120v to the transformer rather than the 12v transformer output to the light.
If I stick with 120v lighting, what do I need to do to make sure it is safe? Maybe the answer is - hire a pro. I understand the need for grounding, but don't quite get the whole
bonding issue with pools if that is even a concern here. My guess is that the niche was bonded when installed, but I don't know how I could confirm that.
In case it is relevant, the pool and spa are about 13 years old. Thanks for any advice.
