5 Reasons You Need LED Pool Lighting
Night swimming is one of the best by-products of owning a pool. But it’s only fun when you’re pool’s well lit. Otherwise it can be scary. At least to me.
Shopping for pool lights can be confusing. There are many options available. But, if you have to choose one, and I recommend choosing LED lighting for these 5 reasons:
1. They Last Longer Than Standard Pool Lights
Have you ever tried to turn the light on in your pool and it blows out? Well, it sucks. LED lighting is durable and can last anywhere from 7 to 15 years.
That’s quite a long time before you have to worry about changing the bulbs.
2. You’ll Save Money
Owning a pool can be costly, so why increase your bills? LED lights cost only pennies a day while incandescent lights can cost a $1.00 or more a day to run.
You’ll pay more upfront for LED lights, but you’ll save in the long run. It’s an investment and it’s just better.
3. Create an Exotic Backyard Oasis
I’m sure you’ve either swam in or own an incandescent pool light. It’s yellowish warm glow got the job done, but it’s was ugly.
With LED lighting, you can have color! Even the flat white light has cool blueish glow which goes well with the crystal clear water of your pool.
You can also customize LED lights in interesting ways.
4.You’ll Use Your Pool More Often
Night swimming will be AWESOME! That’s more time swimming. Also, if you’re an early riser trying to a workout or just a relaxing dip, lights at dawn!
Also, more pool parties! Which leads me to my next reason…
5.Throw Festive Holiday Pool Parties
Did I mention custom lighting colors? You can dress it up for the holidays or even special parties with a simple light bulb change.
- Throwing a July 4th party? Try red, white and blue.
- Decorating for Christmas? Why not red and green?
- Labor Day? White, right?
