    A Good Floating Light to Illuminate Pool

    Hi. Any recommendations? We don't have a pool light IN the pool and I am not going to put one in. With that said I have a couple of ones that you can charge and tey float but there "brightness" isn't stellar. Any thoughts or experiences with products?

    Thanks!

    Since most (all?) floating lights are battery powered they are going to be dim to conserve said battery life. Even an LED that is as bright as a hundred watt pool light would suck 4 AA batteries dead in less than an hour. I don't think you are going to find one that will actually illuminate the pool unfortunately.

    Our solar inflatable light is used as a floating pool light by many of our customers.
