I have another thread going on general design suggestions, but this thread is specifically targeted at getting feedback on my lighting plan. I'm currently planning to use 2 Pentair Intellibrite 5G Pool (LED) lights (on each long end at locations A and B (red text)) and 2 Pentair Globrite (LED) lights on the tanning ledge, as shown in the drawing below. I think this arrangement will be sufficient, but my only concern is possibly having a dead spot right in front of the waterfall. Anyone else (with experience) think that may be a dead spot? Total length of pool is about 36 feet. Other dimensions shown below.
If so, I'm considering the following options, unless someone else suggests something better:
1. Move the Intellibrite Pool light at location B to location C or D, but I'm not sure this won't create other dead spots
2. Add another Intellibrite Pool light at location C. Pretty sure this would solve the problem, but obviously more expensive.
3. Add an Intellibrite Spa light at location C. Not as expensive as the Pool light, but not sure if the light will reach (~11 feet) to the waterfall.
4. Add an Intellibrite Spa light at location E. This would solve the dead spot problem, but I would prefer not to have any pool lights directly facing the house (which is nearest the tanning ledge).
I do not plan to use dark plaster and pool depth will be about 4.5 feet in this area. Any thoughts?
