Swimming pool lighting

Swimming pool lighting

Every pool as an atmosphere, and most are rather individual, however much they resemble one another. One way to give your pool a little personal flavor is to add some creative lighting. This is a place where many people explore the decretive nature of a pool. At night, if your pool is lit with blue lights, everything and everyone will attain a slight blue glow that can prove very atmospheric. Lights are a safety measure as well. When swimming at night light is necessary for safe swimming.

Installing this kind of work is not a do it yourself job. Find an electrician or a contractor to do it for you. If you have an older pool, you should consider having a professional come out and examine your lights, as well as your pump motor.

Swimming pools were not included under the National Electrical Code until 1968, and pools built before then may pose a risk. Water is an excellent conductor of electricity and as such, if something like a lighting fixture were to short out while touching water, the result could be deadly to anyone in the pool at that moment. If anything even looks hazardous, you should have it checked out.
