    Help replacing fiber optic lights

    I have an underground pool, 15X 30. 4 foot at one end and over 10 feet at the deep end.
    I currently have a broken pool lighting system. The lights are fiber optic. As of today I do not know the diameter of the lights, but I suspect about 1.5 inches. I do plan on getting that information this weekend. Broken, I mean broken! The fiber optic lines have been cut. The external components do not exist.
    What I want is a bright white light underwater. I am looking for recommendations. The lights are at the ends of the pool, 30 feet apart.

    Re: Help replacing fiber optic lights

    not real familiar with fiber optic lighting for pools, but it sounds like someone stole the light source. I would imagine that the whole system needs to be replaced. I would think that somehow the light units will come out and the new fiber units will thread thru a conduit.

    It would probably be best to replace with the same as the original lights. Do you have any information on them at all?

    Re: Help replacing fiber optic lights

    I have no idea what brand it is. The light penetrates the pool through a 1.5 in threaded PVC pipe. The fiber optics are ripped and not cleanly cut where the external light once was. I would like to change out the fiber optics for a small LED that I could screw in. I am looking for white only light that is bright. I tried to upload a picture of the damaged fiber optics, but I get errors loading pictures up.
