Now that the warmer weather is here, it’s the perfect time to get your pool looking its best and new lighting is the perfect way to really show it off. Not only does the right lighting help on a practical level for evening dips, it can also make a huge difference to the look of the pool. As experts in pool accessories Perth, we’re here to share our lighting tips to help make your pool a real feature.
Although aesthetics is undoubtedly important for your pool lighting, make sure you’re also thinking about lights from a safety perspective. For those evening swims, you need to have the pool illuminated enough for people to see what they’re doing and to highlight potential hazards – for example, the steps leading in and out of the pool should be well lit. This doesn’t just apply to inside your pool. Make sure there is sufficient lighting around the pool, such as on pathways, so people can see potential tripping hazards.
Upgrade to LED
If you’re happy with the positioning of the lighting in your pool but have your old halogen lights in place, upgrading to LED is a great option. LED lights are more energy efficient and easier to maintain than their halogen counterparts. They also tend to give more even light compared to the ‘spotlight’ feel of halogens. You’ll be surprised at what a difference it can make to simply change out your old lights!
Consider some colour
These days, there are so many options when it comes to pool lighting and you can really add some interest if you go for coloured lights. Different shades of blue are always a popular option for coloured lights and can help make your pool, even more, inviting in the evenings. If you can’t decide on just one colour, don’t worry – there are plenty of advanced options which rotate through different colours or allow you to choose your colour at the touch of a button.
Don’t compromise on quality
Remember that lighting for your pool is an investment. If you choose products which aren’t high quality, they won’t last the distance. You want to enjoy your lighting for years to come so choose reputable brands – it’s worth it in the long run! Your pool technician will also be able to give you advice as to the most appropriate lighting options for your pool.
