    Suggestions for Good Quality Underground Pool Light

    Not sure if the light is the same, it is a Hayward and has colors, Prologic I believe. It is beautiful and it is installed now! This is just one of the colors—there are programmed light shows in the lamp.

    The pool water folks charged us for 38,000 gallons. We had been filling from our well for a few hours before the water trucks started to arrive so I think the volume is about right. Thank you for the information for the Wet Edge website, didn’t think to look there! I typed the incorrect name...
