My light was full of water, rather than to spend hundreds of dollars I fixed it, there was a leak due to the seal. I removed the rust, clean everything, reconditioned the rubber, use magic lubb and change the bulb with a 250 watts bought in hole depot for $15 rather than the $60 to $80 the pool shop was offering me.
And for the last 2 weeks, it works perfectly, i double checked today, no leak at all.

Then today i installed on the switch located near the pool outside a Shelly, a smart device that you can is talk behind any switch or outlet which transforms them into smart ones for only $19.

Shelly Pool Smart Light
And now for a total of $34 i can turn on and off my pool light with my voice.

If some would like to try, you can find here a tutorial on how to install this Shelly, the software behind is open source.

I am installing a Shelly 1pm for the pump. It allows to create schedule and measure the kW consumption too. For $15.
