    Jandy Nicheless failures

    Does anyone know specifically why the jandy nicheless lights fail? Is it overheating, water leaks, or something else?? I've seen comments on youtube and other forums bashing the lights saying they don't last long. But I haven't seen any diagnosis into why. I also see Jandy just re-engineered...

    Light Placement Question

    I am in the early planning stages still. I was thinking 3 jandy 30watt white led nicheless lights evenly spaced apart at the same depth. One installed above the last step. Also 1 9w lighting up the tanning ledge. My question: Do you think that is enough power? Is the placement okay or...

    Hello from Marietta, Georgia!

    Just joining after 3-4 years of reading. I was raised with a 18x36' vinyl pool and miss being able to swim at home. I'm planning on putting in a concrete wall vinyl lap pool this year. I'm very 'frugal' (some would/do say cheap) so it will be all diy except electrical. Inspired very...
