My light is no longer working. I'm thinking of replacing the bulb myself since it looks easy enough to do. i understand that i'll most likely have to replace the gasket as well once i open the casing. Is there a way to find out the correct size gasket without taking it out of the pool? I'm trying to save myself the extra step of having to remove it , replace it and then remove it all again when i get the bulb and gasket. It's a sylvan pool but on their website they had multiple options.
Also , does anyone have a bulb recommendation? The plain white LED bulbs i've seen are priced around $50-$60 and the changing color LEDs are only $80-$90 so i thought I'd get one of those b/c they look fun.
Thank you

Since Anthony/Sylvan pools had parts made for them, and they have been out of business for decades, it would still be good to see a picture. It could just be a re-named light.
You may need to replace the whole light, which, given the age of the light, is really your best and safest option. Be sure there is a GFCI in the light circuit.

So in order to ee what type of light i have i'll have to remove the fixture. Is it ok to leave the fixture out of the pool for a day or two until i get the new gasket?

finally got to take the light out. The only markings on it say swimquip 5055-11. Searching online i can only find replacements for 5057, I guess bc my model is so old. I orderd one and hoping that it fits. Thanks
