Picking the Right Lighting for Your New Pool

When you are installing a new pool in your Orange County home, one of your most important decisions will be deciding what kind of lighting you will need. Oliveira Pool Plastering provides first-class pool installation in Orange County, and we can help you pick out the ideal lighting for your new backyard pool. Here are some of the different types of lights that are available:

Halogen lights. Often found in older pools, halogen lights are a cost-effective choice of lighting that can be installed in any type of pool. However, they are not available in as many colors as LED and fiber optic lights, and they are not as energy-efficient.

Fiber optic lights. These lights use optical fibers for highly precise lighting. Since they are available in a number of different colors and can be placed virtually anywhere, fiber optic lights are one of the most diverse and popular choices for pool lighting. They are also very easy to replace. However, fiber optic pool lighting does tend to be more expensive to install than LED pool lighting, and the lights do not last as long.

LED lights. One of the most energy-efficient choices available today—they use approximately 80 percent less energy than traditional halogen lights— LED lights have become the most popular choice of lighting for 21 st century homeowners. They are available in a diverse range of colors, are cost-effective, and are good for the environment. In addition, LED lights have a lifespan of about 15 years, so you should not need to replace them for a long time.

Whatever type of pool lighting you opt for, your swimming pool contractor can help you decide on the perfect design for your home pool. With the right type of lighting, your new swimming pool can provide you, your family, and your friends with recreational pleasure for many years to come.
