    Where do I put the lights? Pool goes away from house.

    Ok so here is my design. (It will be pushed out about 2 feet because this plan was done too close to the house by mistake). Where would you put the pool lights? It probably isn't that big of a deal because the house is way higher than the pool so you would be looking down about 12' to it on the deck. I don't think it will be visible when sitting/standing in the house.

    Any thoughts that will still do the best to light up both the deep end and the shallow end?Screen Shot 2015-03-17 at 9.06.36 PM.jpg

    My pool is laid out similar to your design. I have a single pool light located on the far side of the pool (furthest from patio) which is where the deep end is located. It provides ample light for the entire pool.
