    Are the Pentair Aqualumin II and III interchangable?

    My Pool light (a Pentair Aqualumin II 12v 100w nicheless) has taken a dump.
    I just want to pop in a replacement and be done with it but pentair quit making the II.
    Does anybody know if the III will work in the II's existing mounting kit?

    Thanks

    I just called them and was told that yes, they are interchangeable. I'm in the same boat.

    I can't find the thing anywhere. I called every dealer with no luck. I called pentair and they gave me the name of some distributors and none of them have it either.
    All of the web sites that say they have it don't. 3 of the sites I went to tried to sell me something different once the order was placed.
    It seems like the distributors don't want to be bothered ordering it. I haven't heard back from any of them that said they would. I think that they don't want to take the time unless there is a high enough demand.
    Pentair doesn't sell anything directly so I am kind of screwed.
    I need the one with the 100' cord.

    Seems like everyone has the one with 50 foot. I would give these guys a call. Maybe they can find you one. They're pretty friendly.

    I did give them a call. One rep said they had 4 with 100' cord in stock. I told him I would call back in 10 minutes to order it cause I didn't have my CC with me. When I called back I got a different rep who said they didn't have any in stock and that they are on a 7-10 day back order. I asked them to double check cause the last guy told me they have it. Nope.

    They all seem to pull this ****. They tell you they have it so you give them the credit card and then they 2 days later they contact you to say it's on back order and then try to sell you something else.
