    My spa light went out, trying to find a replacement

    My light is a Pac Fab #70571, at least that is what the label on the light says should be used.

    It is about 2 inches long and has a screw in base, a small one like a chandelier bulb.

    I would like to get a LED bulb for it, but does anyone know if it will fit in this case? I think there is a case number on it also.

    The bulb I took out looks more long and skinny than the LED lights I've seen.

    EDIT: I found a picture of one it is #7 here:

    I don't think I can get an LED light to fit here as it is a halogen bulb. How difficult is it to replace one of these?

    Turns out it is a T-4 mini can lamp. Does anyone know if you can get an LED replacement?

    END EDIT:

    thanks,
    David

    I know that Pac Fab products are now under the Pentair brand name if that helps.

    I found the part at the pool store and a new bulb at HD. Bulb was half price at HD vs pool store.

    I drained my spa to get access to the light as I have never changed one before and thought it would be nice to do it dry for the first time. After pulling the housing and bulb out, I turned on the light switch and saw the GFCI trip. I reset the GFCI and tried the pool light and all was fine.

    So I put the spa light back together and tried it out without water and it light momentarily till the GFCI tripped. I have now filled the spa and have the same problem.

    Ideas as to why the spa trips the GFCI and the pool light does not? Sounds like I may have to replace the whole light?

    thanks,
    Dave

    I'm looking at replacing this light with a R-20 screw in bulb style. It looks like this is what I need to support the new LED lights. Could somone point me to a place where I can buy them or provide a recommendation?

    thanks,

    If you accidentally got a little water in the lamp enclosure it would trip the GFI.
