Multi Coloured LED Pool Lights

Lighting is a fantastic way to enhance a swimming pool, particularly at night. A swimming pool without lighting is fine during the day, but what happens if you want to swim in the evening, or you are planning a pool party that is likely to continue well into the night?

Give Your Swimming Pool the ‘WOW’ Factor

Compass Pools offer lots of different optional lighting choices for indoor and outdoor swimming pools. Swimming pool lights enhance a swimming pool and help you make the most of your swimming pool installation. Lights can be fitted in and around the swimming pool, for decorative and practical purposes, and with the right lighting design your swimming pool will be transformed into a real showstopper.

Lighting really defines a space, but when water is introduced into the mix an imaginative lighting scheme can turn any room into a magical world of light, shadows and colour. Light and water can be used to create some beautiful effects.

Multi coloured LED pool lights are suitable for swimming pools outdoors and indoors. At night the wonderful effect of LED pool lighting really comes into its own. You can choose a lighting effect to match your decorative scheme, which is perfect for outdoor entertaining. Instead of using boring white lights for the pool, turn your swimming pool into an aquatic disco – your guests will love the special effects.

As well as being decorative, lighting is also useful from a safety perspective. You can use lighting to define the perimeter of the pool and steps into the pool, so nobody accidentally falls into your swimming pool at night.

Pool Lighting Options

There are many ways to light a swimming pool: externally and internally. In-pool lighting has to be fully submersible and fitted to an extremely high standard in order to meet strict safety standards, but can look beautiful, particularly at night. A second option is to light the pool from the sides using LED lighting; controls for lighting will be accessible from the pump room.

Why Choose LED Swimming Pool Lighting?

The main advantage of LED pool lights s that they are energy efficient. LED 12V bulbs will typically last for around 1,000 hours before they need replacing. If you have a pool light timer installed, or you opt for the iQ Pool Control system during the installation of your swimming pool, you can extend the lifespan of your pool lights considerably since pool lighting will only be switched on when needed. Not only is this good for the environment, but it is also good for your electricity bill.

LED lights also produce strong colours, which is why they are such a popular choice for people who enjoy poolside entertaining. Beautiful colour changing pool lights can add a touch of glamour to any swimming pool, no matter how small. You can even programme your lights to change colour in time with the music if you wish.

Pool lights are easy to maintain, even for inexperienced homeowners, but if you would like more information about the benefits of LED lights for swimming pools or you are considering adding LED lighting to your swimming pool, contact Compass Pools for some expert advice today.
