    Re: LED Light Recommendations

    I can say I've been happy with my pentair 5G LED.
    Just know that if you change to one of these, the wire is part of the new light. So you'll be pulling wire.


    I do believe there are retrofits that basically give you an LED light bulb that plugs into your existing fixture.

    I have two pentair intellibrites and love them despite having lights replaced under warranty.
    Not sure how they will hold up moving forward, we shall see.

    I have FiberStars. Not familiar with those products, but I wish my lights could remember which color I last set them to. I would demand that feature if I were to ever purchase led pool lights again.

    I also like the pentair intellibrites, and the extra features I get when they installed with pentair automation. I do have one question for you... What issues requires replacement? Sometimes my lights take a long time to fire up when I turn them on.

    Re: LED Light Recommendations

    They are 20 plus years old and seals leak after replacement, light has water in it, fuse flips. I wanted to replace old with new LED and replace entire unit back up to the j box.

    First led light lost brightness, and second one lost blue color. Both lights got fogged lens, however I'm not sure if it's direct failure cause.
