    LED Lights for Saltwater Waterfall

    I have scoured the internet with no luck. Does anyone know who makes small LED (or even non-LED) lights for waterfalls that are suitable for saltwater? Preferably for less than $100 each, but at this point, I'm open to anything! FYI, all the pond lighting places say they are only suited for fresh water (hence "pond" lighting).

    Why are these so hard to find? Do so few people put lighting in their pool waterfalls? Thanks for any help!!

    I think there is some confusion about what saltwater means. Generally pool water, even with a SWG, could be considered freshwater. The salt level is only ~3500ppm and a non-SWG pool could easily have a salt level of >1000ppm.

    The ocean is saltwater. It has a salt concentration 10x that of a SWG pool ... up around 35,000ppm.

    So if you are looking for equipment for a pool, save the confusion and do not put too much concern about a "saltwater" rating ... unless of course it is a pool that uses ocean water in it

    Gotcha. The forged brass makes sense, and they even say they're ideal for chlorinated and chemically treated water features. Thanks folks!

    I use volt for all my landscape lighting - excellent company and lifetime warranty
