Thread: I need help to fix my pool light!

    I need help to fix my pool light!

    I need some help on what size of light gaskets for my 30 year old pool lights that still work. I realize that these lights are most likely not made anymore; however I don't want to buy new lights if these just need cleaning. The glass lens are dirty inside and I want to clean them and replace the gaskets. I will shut off electrical power to the pool for this project. The larger one has a glass lens about 7 inches in diameter which is surrounded by a metal face plate that was made by Purex. The smaller light is about 3.5 inches in diameter surrounded by a metal face plate that doesn't have a name on it; see photos. Also please recommend where to buy online for fast delivery. Thank you!

    Can you make out the labels on the light housing for either? You may be able to search on the web and find some gaskets. Purex parts are still available from several online vendors.

    I know nothing about pool lights, but auto parts stores often have gasket material to make your own gasket. Just a thought.

    Thanks for your replies. I opened up the light and it was filled with a dark gooey substance that was too difficult to clean, so the pool light was irreparable. Thanks for your ideas. I am going to have to replace the entire lightxprobably with a Pentair.
