One day last week, the pool light just went really really dim. I turned it off for a few minutes, then when I turned it back on it was fine. But then again it went dim after about 1 minute. This weekend I took it out to find a good amount of water inside the fixture where the bulb is at. I also noticed a small hole I guess from corrosion after the years. I took the bulb out and tested it. It works fine. I let it sit out and dry for 1 day then tried to test it outside the pool for about 1 second and nothing. The hole tells me that water is getting inside of it and might off shorted out some stuff, cuz I did see a little smoke coming from it when I turned it on for that 1 second. So I guess I need to replace the the whole fixture all together.
My light is a American Products Amerlite. Can I just replace the fixture and use the same cord thats already there? Looks like the cord connector can just be unscrewed with a wrench. Or do I need to repalce the entire cord also? What will that entail?
