I am hoping to find someone out there that has installed these.
I am replacing my 4 failed Nexxus Melody LEDs with the Jandy Pro units (JLUC10). This is the first time I actually had them in my hands to take a detailed look at them and the instructions. First the instructions say to leave 14" slack at the pool for winterization but they don't provide any other winterization instructions. Next I can't even imagine how to shove 14" of slack back into the 1.5" conduit - the cord itself is pretty stiff and will not naturally fold back on itself in the conduit. Am I supposed to fold it myself (which will triple the thickness) and try to tuck in? Then looking at the assembly, there is no gasket seal between the LED light assembly and the adapter that screws into the pool wall. This means that water will flow back into the conduit. I am OK with the water in the conduit except that it is then subject to freezing. The Nexxus units had O-rings as gaskets and seem to work pretty good.
I can see where an O-ring might be placed on the face of the adapter but I am not sure this would actually work. And I would have to find one the right diameter and thickness. I actually would think that a waterfilled conduit would better dissipate any heat generated by these lights. In posts, that seemed to be the favored failure mode of the Nexxus units.
I have sent in a support request to Zodiac Pool Systems but thought I would ask on this forum.
At the moment, I am thinking I will pull them out at the end of the season and somehow blow the conduits out.
Thanks in advance for any guidance!
