    Pool Light Mounting Ring Rusting

    Hey y'all. I hope someone has some insight for me as to why my mounting ring for my pool light is rusting. In February, I changed the old broken 300w 120v light to a 12v Pentair Amerlite. The light's trim ring is fine, but for some reason the mounting ring is now rusting. Anyone know why?

    Low pH, maybe?

    If you are relying on pool store testing, it may well be that simple.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
