Picture above: Pool lighting combines with lights in and outside the house to create a dramatic effect.
Pool Lights On.
Most swimming pools and spas are installed with underwater lighting which should be powered with alternating current that does not exceed 12 volts. The entire installation, including the electric cable, must be waterproof and made of materials which will not corrode. By law it must be installed by a licensed electrician.
Lighting should also be strong enough to see a swimmer should he or she get into difficulties under the water.
Garden lighting, which must also be weatherproof, is also useful around pools and may be all you need to light up the surrounding area.
Careful thought must also be given to patios and entertaining areas which need to be properly lit. There are various options ranging from floodlights to portable garden candles.
