Pool Light Burned out EVERY YEAR


Jun 9, 2017
Hopwood, pa
Hi - please help.
I'm located in PA and keep my in-groud pool open from May - Sept. Every year when I open it, the pool light is burned out. Last year I decided to replace it with an LED bulb thinking that the incandescent was freezing. However, I opened the pool today and the LED is not working. The GFC is fine. When I change the bulb, there is no water in it. I'm stumped. Has anyone else experienced this? Do I need to resort to talking the light out each year when I close my pool?

Kind Regards,

Is it possible that it accidentally gets turned on and left on during the off season? If so make sure you turn it off at the breaker at end of season.
