Has anyone used a marine grade led light for a boat dock or boat In their inground pool? They look like better quality and have a better warranty than the leds from Pentair and Hayward. We are building a pool and looking for better alternatives. Pentair and Hayward don’t seem to have the led light thing Mastered yet. Thanks in advance.

i know this bolts onto a dock, but we were thinking of putting it in a small niche.

Interesting option. Costs about the same per light as pool lights.

Check that the lights meet NEC part 680 codes for pools in your area. I see some things that may cause issues with inspectors.

I like the part about being able install them even on barnacle encrusted pilings... I always wondered what I was going to do with the barnacle encrusted pilings in my pool :scratch:

Great joke, so bravo. But check this out....... when I opened to a swamp last week, the pool reeked like being down at the dock. It was the same algae and salt (even though it was more diluted than the sea water). I never gave the dock smell any thought and just always associated it with low tide, but it was because all the salty green crud was exposed along the dock.
