    Question Pentair Intellibrite 5G Color LED Issues. What's next?

    I have two Pentair Intellibrite 5G Color LED lights installed last fall during my pool build.
    This spring one light failed right away(lost brightness, color intensity) and almost within couple weeks second light failed as well - lost blue color and brightness.
    Both lights had fogging inside.
    Pentair took a good care and replaced both lights under warranty. Once I got my first light replaced, I couldn't believe how bright it is and how clear lens is.
    My second LED was replaced 3 weeks later after the first one. Again, it is bright and clear, and both lights are in sync, and are producing great colors.

    However, I already see some minor fogging in my first warranted light, just 3 weeks later!!!

    At this point I kinda question longevity of Intellibrite lights.
    Is it common to see fogging inside?
    Does it cause problems (I think so)?
    What should we do to address this issue (gasket replacement doesn't makes sense at all)?

    Please share your thought on this.

    That's great! Do you see any fogging on light lens at all?
