    Rebuilding pool lights

    So Ive got a 30 year old pool that we're re-plastering and tiling.

    I got to thinking... while we have the pool apart this would be a good time to replace the lenses and gaskets on the pool and hot tub lights.

    What we have are Swimquip 5075 lights with 500 watt bulbs. I haven't disassembled them yet because I don't have replacement parts.. and I know If I take these things apart I'm going to ruin the gaskets (they're 30 years old)

    Sta-Rite/Pentair list swimquip parts that look right but because the eqipment is so old they don't list my part numbers.

    What are the chances that the Sta-Rite/Pentair parts http://www.poolcenter.com/p/swimquip...ol-light-parts will fit my ancient fixtures

    I found this on another forum as I was wondering if the 5086 light would be a direct replacement it sounds like the 5086 would fit in the 5075 cutout, maybe you could upgrade? Looks like the 5086 is about $215 bucks though, maybe the 5086 parts will fit the 75?:

    I took out a Swimquip No. 5075,(out of a pool that was converted to salt setup) at the bottom it says for freshwater only. Is this light a proper replacement ? Is this light OK for a salt setup ?

    We could not cross reference model number 5075. Model 05086-0100 is the correct replacement if you have a 500 watt 120v Swimquip pool light. The 05086-0100 will work in a saltwater pool.

    pir8radio.. I found that too.. I was hoping to get confirmation...
    $215 Vs replacing the gasket and lenses total cost of about 60 bucks/light its a no brainer
