Thread: Any precautions when working with lights?

    Any precautions when working with lights?

    I have 2 ColorLogic lights installed in my IGP, and it has just come to my attention that one of them is falling out of the socket. I need to get underneath the water with a pair of goggles to really see what's going on, but it seems like perhaps the screws holding in the light have come loose and perhaps the screw holes are actually stripped or something.

    Besides the obvious of turning off the power to the lights, is there anything specific I should be careful about when working with this fixture?

    The pool is brand new this summer, and still under warranty, so I may leave well enough alone and just have the PB come back and take a look. But I figured if it's just a loose screw, I can save everyone the trouble of scheduling a service call.

    It's probably just a loose screw; the one that holds the light housing in the light niche. Mine has trouble staying in as well.
