Lighting alternative - Jandy CPHVLEDS100 watercolors died

Our pool runs on an Aqualink RS controller which is programmed for the Jandy CPHVLEDS100 Watercolors light.

We don’t have to have the color, and $800 seems excessive for a light that dies as frequently as the reviews seem to indicate.

What would you guys recommend as an alternative? I am comfortable with either repair, replacement, or even going to an incandescent system if can be converted?

I think your option is going to an incandescent light. Inyopools has this article that shows what lights are compatible with what niches. You need to figure out what light niche your builder used.

Or you can probably replace the LED light engine for $500 - $600.
