Replacing Pentair Globrite lights

We have also had problems with our GloBrite lights--2 of them had gone out only after 3 years. Pentair won't do anything about their faulty product. When I had someone come out to give bid to replace he recommend we change them out with the Pentair MicroBrite lights. Does anyone know if this is ok even though the size is a little smaller with the MicroBrite light? I have gotten conflicting answers.

Welcome to TFP.

GloBrites use a proprietary size niche. MicroBrites fit into a 1.5” PVC line. How is that going to be changed in your pool?

Welcome to the forum!

The only replacement for Pentair GloBrites I have seen that say they fit into the Globrite niche are Pool Tone Nicheless 1 1/2 inch lights. Available from Florida-Sunseeker.
