01/10/17 Replacing Pool Lights with LED RGB Lights

Article - January 10, 2016 By

18 Watt RGB LED PAR 38 Remote Control Light

Replacing Pool Lights with LED RGB Lights

Incandescent fixtures are extremely inefficient solutions for pool lights. The units are prone to breakage, require around-the-clock maintenance and lack colorful features. A viable option for replacing pool lights includes long-lasting, durable fixtures that can produce an array of colors, like LED RGB lamps.

Benefits of LED RGB Pool Lights

LED RGB pool lights are superior replacements for outdated, incandescent pool fixtures. When it comes to energy savings, the lamps cost roughly $9 per year to operate (using a 42-watt LED RGB bulb at six hours per day of usage). By comparison, 300-watt incandescent bulbs cost around $210 to operate annually, factoring in both maintenance and energy consumption. Over the same period, LEDs do not need to be replaced due to their average lifespan of 50,000+ hours. Furthermore, the lights manage heat efficiently, resulting in a cooler operating temperature, which is noticeable when one puts his or her hands over the light underwater. With a solid state design, the lamps can withstand vibration and impact from swimmers accidentally kicking, or leaning against the light for support.

The most common type of LED RGB pool light available in the market today is the Parabolic Aluminized Reflector (PAR) bulb. Such bulbs closely resemble traditional, screw-in type pool fixtures with an Edison base. Transitioning from incandescent pool bulbs to PAR LED RGB bulbs is as simple as removing the old unit and replacing it with the new one (no re-wiring required). PAR LED RGB pool lights support wide angle beams for comprehensive coverage underwater.

“PAR bulbs offer precise light control with the capacity to produce up to four times the concentrated beam intensity, compared to other general lighting options. The bulb’s lens boasts a fresnel-like design that contributes to its ability to focus reflected light accurately on specific targets,” said Larson Electronics. When buying LED RGB pool lights, it is crucial for the units to support waterproof, impact proof or Ingress Protection (IP) ratings to reduce the risk of shock and premature failure during operation.

LED RGB Pool Lighting Configurations

Individuals who are interested in colorful customizations for their pool should consider investing in LED RGB lights. The fixtures, equipped with red, blue and green colors, can emit a wide range of colors (around 16 million combinations) and animations. Most LED RGB pool lights are controlled using a wireless remote or a compatible third-party smartphone app. For large pools that use multiple fixtures, the units can be synchronized together for harmonious lighting. When numerous LED RGB lamps are available, one may also setup elaborate light shows. For example, you can program selected fixtures to rapidly emit green light, while the others can be set to slow fade yellow.

LED RGB fixtures that support memory functions are ideal for autonomous lighting configurations. The feature allows operators to save settings or profiles for future use or playback. When turning off the lights, the unit “remembers” the previous setting and will automatically activate the last configuration, when turning the light back on. Memory functions are useful during pool parties and outdoor gatherings. Individuals can preset light configurations manually, and play them effortlessly while entertaining guests. Memory profiles could also be combined with fog machines, music and water fountain displays for an immersive aquatic experience.
