    Adding a pool light after build

    This might not be the right folder to post in but it seemed most appplicable to this verses other folders.

    I'd like to add a pool light to my exsisting pool that came without a niche or other. I am quite handy with electricity and what not.

    Does anyone have any ideas about how I might add a sweet pool light at this point?

    What is your deck like? Most any actual pool light is going to require access to the outside of the pool wall someplace.

    Did you see the pool while your liner was out? any chance there is a niche there that was blocked off?

    I have a concrete deck. I spoke with the installer and he said there was never a niche, as I asked him directly. He has installed a liner on this pool before so I am certain that he is correct. What troubles me is that there is a breaker labeled 'pool lite' on the breaker and they do not protect the circuit for the 2 pairs of flood lights that illuminate the deck and pool area. I am not opposed to a battery solution or one that hangs on the side of the pool and whose power cord could be hidden in the seems between the concrete sections. I was curious if anyone had any personal experiance with any of those 'most-likely-junk' solutions.
