We have a 17k gallon pool that was constructed in 2008. The pool has two lights, at either end, located about mid way between the pool surface and bottom. The lights are 500 watts each.
Recently, our neighbor had a pool built, and the builder installed multi-colored LED lights, with an equivalent light output of 400-500 watts (don't recall exactly). Now my wife wants the led lights for our pool, but we keep hearing that led bulbs cannot be placed in enclosed fixtures. That said, the fixtures are under the pool surface, and the enclosures handle 500 watt incandescent bulbs. So I can't imagine there would be an issue with LEDs in the enclosures.
Couple questions. Any idea if the led bulbs would be suitable for the type of fixtures typically installed in 2008? If so, any recommendations as to where to buy these things or the brand of bulb? As noted, she would like a 400-500 equivalent LED bulb that changes colors.
Thank you (this forum has been a lifesaver).
