    LED Bulb replacement

    I am about to change the burnt out bulb in my pool and wanted to change to an LED. My current bulb is a 120V 500W. While searching a replacement LED, I came across this one....

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...YXKHG67ZWETKAR

    Now the price at $88.50 is about half what most of the LED's are. Any use this bulb before? Do you think it is worth the gamble?

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    I have not noticed them mentioned on the forum before. You might have to be the guinea pig

    Did you consider one of the color changing LED bulbs? I put a ColorSplash 3G in mine ... certainly not as bright as the white, but the kids like it.

    Re: LED Bulb replacement

    Your links' write up mentions a fan for reliability. Cheaply made electrical components sometimes run hot, then boast a fan for "performance". What i would do if you want to get this light would be to run it in a household socket and observe if there is indeed a significant heat output. Keep in mind that when the bulb is in the light fixture, there is no ventilation. I would be willing to bet that the led would fail (if heat were a problem) long before the fixtures own heat cutoff switch was activated.

    So you think it would be ok to run in a household lamp? LEDs aren't supposed to provide alot of heat so it may be fine.

    Is this just a bulb that replaces the old bulb?

    Yes. You change the color or light show by toggling the light switch.

    Should you buy two if both pool & spa are operated on one circuit?

    The manual indicates that they can be synced together if on the same light switch.
