The Importance of Proper Pool Lighting

June 30, 2017

There are many benefits to owning a swimming pool, however, during the planning stages pool lightning choices often get overlooked during the pool designing and landscaping phase. Actually, underwater swimming pool lights, as well as landscaping lighting for areas around a pool, are very important, mainly for the sake of safety.

However, the placement of pool lighting, the amount of lights required, and the type of lights used all need to be taken into consideration to achieve proper pool lighting.

The Importance of Proper Pool Lighting Explained

Yes, swimming pool lights are extremely important, first as a safety feature, and then as an effective means to enhance and refine the overall aesthetics and ambiance of all areas around a pool. To achieve proper pool lighting there are a few things to consider:

  • Safety
  • The size of the pool
  • The purpose of the pool
  • Type of pool lighting, LED lights or incandescent pool lights

Safety – there should be ample lighting in and around areas of a swimming pool, especially if small children live in the home. It is not uncommon for people to fall into swimming pools when they cannot clearly see while walking at night. So, placing pool lighting around walkways and the edges of pools is absolutely necessary.

The size of your pool – depending if you have a small or large pool will determine how many swimming pool lights you should have. Often, older pools had only a few lights and these were not very effective for use during night swimming.

The purpose of your pool – if you enjoy swimming at night, and having friends and family over for BBQ parties, then you will definitely need to have ample pool lighting installed in and around your pool.

Type of pool lighting – while incandescent pool lights are still available, new LED pool lights are now the popular choice because they last up to 50 times longer than incandescent bulbs, and they consume 80-percent less electricity too. LED pool lights are also shatterproof and not easy to break like incandescent lights, and, with high-end multi coloured LED pool lights, you can adjust the colour of lighting to best fit the mood of your gathering.

If you want to make sure that you have proper lighting in and around your swimming pool, then let the professionals at Mr Pools help you install new pool lights, or replace your old pool lighting with new multi coloured LED pool lights.
