My pool light hasn't worked since before I took over the pool, which is sad because I really liked it. I miss it. It's been dead so long.
I opened the box the light is fed from and there's no juice there. Disconnected the wires on the light side of the transformer and no juice there either. There is, however, juice on the house side of the transformer. So I know that the transformer is bad.
The input to the transformer is a 120V, 15 A circuit and it's a 12V DC circuit going out. I'd like to check the light before I bother with this, since I don't want to replace the transformer if it won't make a difference. The light is not trivial to change, but hopefully I won't have to ask about that if I'm lucky and it's only the transformer. Unlike my (unlucky) Tampa Bay Rays an hour or so ago ...
Does anyone have an idea of what sort of amperage a pool light would draw? I'm trying to figure out what sort of battery I might be able to test it with? That is, do I need a car battery, something bigger, a pink bunny, or just a couple of lantern batteries?
