There’s nothing more pleasant than having a nice, relaxing swim after a long day’s hard work. Splashing around under the moonlight sounds appealing enough, but your pool would truly shine if it had some well-placed lights in it.
Pool lighting has gone through a lot of major changes throughout time—from the old style of having two lights embedded into the pool wall (one in the deep end and one in the shallow end), to today’s pool lighting, which is all about style and energy-efficiency. The dawn of LED light technology has also allowed homeowners to customize their pools with various effects and color combinations, making for a unique visual experience without being too costly to keep on all night.
One particular style that stands out is to have different colored lights illuminating different areas in the pool, creating a wide array of combinations where two or more hues meet near the center. Some people put the lights right near spouts or water fountains, thus crafting the illusion of streams of water delivering various shades to the pool.
When you’re looking to have efficient pool lighting installed, always get in touch with professionals to do it for you. DIY lighting installation is a bad idea, since you’ll be dealing with water and electricity—a deadly combination if you don’t work with skill and care. Make sure that a registered electrician looks into the installation before turning them on.
