    Replacing amerlite IG light fixture

    I haven't completed all the testing yet, but it appears I may have to replace this fixture.

    I installed the light fixtures in my pool about nine years ago and have forgotten exactly how it was done. My concern is I used some "potting compound" in the back of the niche to seal a connection.

    I am hoping it was the bonding wire connection and not the power cord from the fixture up to power. I can't remember.

    Does anyone have any insight into this?

    I think this is the stuff you want and yes it's meant for the ground connection as opposed to the bond connection.

    Thank you. I don't need the compound. I am just trying to remember where I used it. That fixture is gonna have to come out and the more I think about it, I am also positive the fixture wire was not epoxied in place so it should pull okay.

    I DO remember that pulling that fixture wire through about 80+ feet of pipe with four 90's was a pretty big task so I am hoping it will come back out.

    I've never had to do it with a pool light, but i imagine over time the cord can also sorta bond itself to the inside of conduit and make breaking it free pretty difficult. Good luck!
