Hello,

I have 120V lighting for my pool and spa. I have a few questions regarding how to convert to 12V for safety reasons. I do not have a transformer.
1) The spa and pool lights are turned on and off from my controller separately, Does this mean I would need 2 transformers to continue to be able to control them independently? can one transformer provide the control also for the 2 lights?
2) Do I need to run a new wire from the light to the transformer or can I use the existing wire?

I want to eliminate a 120V source going to the pool water so just changing the bulb to LED will not do that.

Thanks in advance.

To control them separately, you would need a transformer for each light. So two transformers.
2) Do I need to run a new wire from the light to the transformer or can I use the existing wire?
You can use the existing wire.

What 'controller' do you have?
