    School on on LED pool lights

    I need a new light fixture for my pool. Currently have a pentair 120v 500w incandescent with the thermal shut off stuck in the off position.

    I have been looking at Pentair 601301 Intellibrite White Underwater LED Pool Light with 50-Feet Cord, 120-Volt. Its about $415 Shipped. BUT a replacement bulb is $623?

    But i can buy a Pentair Amerlite's Pool Light with 120V, 500W, 50' Cord. for $191 and replace the bulb with an LED thats replaceable for $129 and watch as the LED prices come down in the next 50,000 hours of use?

    i really wanna get a light in this pool, but buying a $400 light that doesnt have replaceable bulbs seems like shooting yourself in the foot?

    Re: School on on LED pool lights

    I kind of agree with you. Many of the new LED lights are expensive and not repairable/replaceable. Personally I would likely go with the standard light fixture and then you can replace the bulb with either a white LED or even a color changing LED bulb. They may not be as bright, but that does not concern me.

    Are you sure these all fit in your existing light niche?

    There are significant differences in the technology and life cycle of LED bulbs.

    Much longer life - lower energy cost - color features - and more...
