Thread: Pool Light Lens Orientation

    Pool Light Lens Orientation

    My pool just received a new liner and the liner guy disassembled my pool light during the install. When he removed the lens from the light, he did not line it back up the way I had it. My question is:

    On a Hayward Astrolite, does it matter which way you turn the lens so that the light reflects in the pool correctly? I had it to where the wording is readable when you are facing the light in the pool, he reinstalled it on a 45 degree angle. Not trying to be OCD here, but I just installed a new light and gasket and I can correct it rather quickly if necessary.

    It does not matter witch way the lens is the light will still shine the same. If you want it the way you had it you can remove the light and set it on the pool deck to rotate the lens. If you do this I recommend you change the lens gasket to insure a good seal

    Re: Pool Light Lens Orientation

    The lens is usually designed to be oriented with the writing facing the correct way. The lens directs the light downward. If you look at the lens carefully, you can see that it is directional. The lens says "top" to show the correct orientation.

    be sure that the lens is properly mounted utilizing its "top" marking as a reference. ... SP05xx.pdf
