Types of Fun Pool Lighting
You may already have one light which was installed with your pool. That’s fine, but it does little to create ambiance or party fun.
The world is forever changing, and many changes in the technology industry are very good at making our lives easier and better. Pool lighting is on it’s way to becoming fun, beautiful, and easy to control.
Today’s options in pool lighting allow you to choose from an array of new LED lights that can change color automatically or at the push of a button on a handheld remote.
LED lighting is very efficient and can be integrated into a number of outdoor fixtures. You may want to arrange a series of pole lanterns that surround the pool.
If you have a deck or stairs, recessed lights can be installed for easy and safe pool access. LED party lanterns and string lights are fun and come in a variety of themes and styles.
Choosing Your Pool Lighting Electrician
The last thing you’ll ever hear from any electrician is that it’s okay to install your pool lighting yourself. You don’t want a serious accident to occur on your property whether it’s a loved one involved, yourself, or later a guest. Pool lighting can be dangerous if installed wrong or the person doing the work doesn’t know what they’re doing when working with electricity. Water and electricity do not mix. You don’t want this deadly combination touching together anywhere.
If you’ve ever seen electricity jump from one place to another, then you know what electrical arcs are. This is why it’s so easy to get electrocuted when working on wiring yourself or when you’re around a loose connection or where insulation is worn off the wiring.
