I bought a Pentair 5g 12v light (even though I have a 120v circuit) for my pool. My electrician came out and installed a transformer to lower the voltage to the light. I wasn't home when any of this work was being done. He called me and said the light must be bad because it simply isn't working. When I got home, I smelled the faint scent of electrical smoke.
My question is, will these lights blow if you turn them on with no water in the pool? My pool is currently drained for cleaning and I left it drained for him to finish his work.
2nd question is, can I simply test the light to make sure it isn't a problem at my circuit breaker box?
