    VARIOUS POOL LIGHTS - ACTUAL BEAM SPREAD TEST

    Guys,

    I was looking at my old file and I found these photos.
    Just in case anyone are into lights, these my help.
    The brands are mainly European, a few are very high end models.
    I was doing this test for a friend whose pool was under construction at that time.
    See titles of the photos to get the product name.

    Enjoy.........

    TECHNIKI - 100W Halogen

    NOTE :

    All lights photos are purposely over exposed to show actual beam spread.
    The actual beam is not as bright as the photo.
    Pool color and material is important to get good overall underwater light distribution.
    The final choosen pool light for my friend is the WIBRE 100 watt because it is the brightest for the watt.
    The reflector is very advance and it is not seal beam like the 300W BEGA.
    However his pool is blue tile and the overall brightness is very poor compared to my white tiled pool.

    Where I state it is Halogen , it means the bulb is halogen type and replaceable, unlike seal beam where you must buy the light+reflector.

    All the lights here are 12 Volt units.

    Wibre 100W Halogen in blue tiled background.

    Photo is bad because its using a camera phone and at night.
    I can remember well the actual brightness how this light, and it did well in my white tiled pool.
    Dang dark colour tiled pool wasted this very expensive lamp, its +-US$1,300 ( i think I am right ) a piece of German..... over priced by marketing ?
