Next year we are hoping to add more outdoor lighting to our yard. It's not adequately lit for nightime swimming and I get nervous when friends come over with little ones to use the pool. Last year I purchased a light designed for pools that drops into the water a bit and lights the pool with a halon bulb. It lasted only the one season and wasn't cheap. Before I contact the pool catalog company for a replacement bulb (if they sell them) I was wondering how everyone else kept their pool area well lit. Thank you!
