Well I filled my new pool over the weekend, and I'm not happy with the placement of the pool light. The guy that did the layout suggested putting it at the steps, and I thought it would be better at the end of the pool but did not say anything because I thought he knew best. I have a rectangular shape pool and the steps are in the middle of one of the long sides. Now I have a very bright bottom step right below the light, and light only in the middle of the pool. I have a JandyColors light which looks great but I can't get over the bad placement of it. It really belongs at the end, so the light is cast down the pool longwise, and not adjacent to a step or the floor.
Anyone ever perform light-relocation surgery on a gunite pool? I'm assuming it would entail draining the pool, cutting a new hole for the light, and running the conduit under my travertine pavers. Then fill the hole where the existing light is and new pebblefina over the hole. Any comments or suggestions?
