Phoenix Pool Parts has everything you need to repair, service, or replace pool lighting
Pool lights are a part of most pools, and they offer far more benefits than mere lighting. There are countless pool lighting products on the market, and they range from simple flood lamps to complex LED lights that can turn your pool into a kaleidoscope of color.
Older pools used incandescent lights, and in the 80s many pools were lighted with halogen pool bulbs. Fiber optic lighting made it possible to run light above and below the water line. However, today’s most popular pool lights are LED bulbs, and they come in all sorts of styles and choices of luminosity.
Most of the time, you are entirely unaware of your pool lights because they’re working the way they should. However, sometimes bulbs have to be replaced. The frequency with which you will have to replace your pool light bulbs depends on which bulbs you’re using. Here is a breakdown on the lifespan of your Phoenix pool lights:
Incandescent bulbs – 1,000 hours
Halogen pool bulbs – 2,500 hours
LED pool lights – 25 years or more
Obviously, there is a good reason to use LED bulbs whenever possible. While the initial investment will be higher, you will ultimately save a fortune over time, and you will rarely have to deal with the hassle of replacing the bulb.
A few words about light fixtures
Pool light fixtures have a lifespan around that of LED bulbs, but your pool’s chemistry may cause damage to the fixture that necessitates replacement. The light cord may also become damaged and, since they can’t be replaced, you will have to replace the entire fixture.
You need to exercise caution if you decide to replace a pool light bulb on your own. To prevent water from coming into contact with the bulb, your fixture is sealed with a gasket. The cool water in the pool is what prevents the fixture from overheating. It only takes a couple of seconds for a fixture to overheat if it is not submerged in your pool. If your Phoenix pool light fixture overheats, the lens may quickly shatter, sending tiny shards of glass in every direction.
If you’re unsure how to replace a bulb or a pool light fixture, one of our service technicians can do the job. If you know what you’re doing, we can help you find the right light bulb for your pool.
Troubleshooting your Phoenix pool lights
There are some common problems pool owners encounter at one time or another, so we’ve added some of these scenarios here to help you better understand how to deal with them. As with anything pool related, you should feel comfortable dealing with the problem before attempting a repair. This is especially true if electrical work is involved.
Why is there water behind the lens?
If you’ve ever been in your pool and noticed water surrounding your bulb inside of the fixture, them you probably discovered how quickly you can get out of your pool. If you notice water behind the lens, the bulb needs to be replaced. You also need to ascertain why water was leaking into the fixture. Sometime there are holes in the gasket, or the rim may even be badly warped.
To remove the water from behind the lens, it will be necessary to purchase some parts that ensure the fixture will not leak. You will also want to replace the light bulb because the water could have damaged it. You also have the option of changing the entire Phoenix pool light fixture, so you could take advantage of the opportunity to upgrade the fixture if you like.
If you do your own repair on the light lens, be sure there are no bubbles escaping from the lamp, otherwise the leak is still there.
Why won’t my Phoenix pool light turn on?
If your pool light stops working all of a sudden, you should check the most obvious sources of the problem before changing the bulb or the fixture. A good place to start is the circuit breaker, power switches, and GFCI outlets. If you reset a GFCI outlet switch and it trip again when you turn on the pool light, you should contact a professional to take a look at it.

If everything looks okay, then it’s likely your light bulb that’s gone bad, and it’s time to replace it. If you were using an incandescent bulb or flood lamp, this is a good time to consider changing to an LED bulb. You could even consider installing a new fixture to enjoy multicolored Phoenix pool LED lights. Let’s take a look at some of those now.
Phoenix pool LED lights – An upgrade to fun and functionality
Making your pool more inviting and fun is always a good idea. One of the least expensive ways to turn your pool into something extraordinary is with Phoenix pool LED lights that can change colors while saving you a considerable amount of energy use.
AmerBrite, Colorsplash and some other manufacturers make bulbs that can fit into an existing fixture, which means you can enjoy a spectrum of colors by simply changing the bulb. This will cost far less than replacing the entire fixture.
Phoenix pool LED lights do far more than simply illuminate your pool. Your entire back yard can be transformed in countless ways by purchasing the right fixture or bulb. Create an ambiance or mood with soft blue or vibrant red colors, or simply let the color spectrum rotate as you and your guests enjoy the crisp Phoenix night air and some pleasant music.
You can change the lighting to suit any event or mood. Maintain a single color or hit a button to start a pre-programmed light show where colors change rapidly or slowly. Some LED fixtures even allow you to synchronize lights in your spa, pool, and landscape.
You may also want to consider replacing your light switch with a light controller, that allows you to make adjustments to your Phoenix pool LED lights with ease.
One of the most appealing aspects of LED pool lights is their energy saving qualities. This energy savings translates into lower power bills, which is why it makes sense to upgrade to LED whenever the opportunity arises. In fact, an LED bulb uses 85% less energy than an incandescent bulb, so you can see why everyone is making the switch.
Yet another appealing quality of LED lights are their longevity. While incandescent bulbs only last 2,00 hours on average, LED bulbs can last for decades. Newer LED bulbs will continue to operate even if one of the LEDs burns out, which is a considerable upgrade over older LEDs.
Changing a Pool light bulb – A step-by-step process
If you order your bulb from us, it will arrive at your home by the next day at the latest. When it’s time to change the bulb, you can cross reference this handy guide, or contact us to arrange a visit from one of our professional technicians.
Step 1 – Shut off all power switches and the circuit breaker.
Step 2 – Most fixtures can be removed from the pool without lowering your water level, because they have a cord coiled up inside of the fixture. There is a screw at the top of the light that needs to be removed before you pry the fixture out of the pool niche. Once, you wiggle the fixture free, lift it up onto your deck.
Step 3 – Always make sure you use the right tools for the job. Sometimes screws and other parts of the fixture are corroded, especially if it’s an older, so you need to be careful not to damage it. Once you remove all of the screws around the fixture, you will remove the bezel and then pry out the glass lens with a flat-edged tool.
Step 4 – Remove the bulb carefully. You don’t want to break it, or you will have a big mess on your hands. Some bulbs screw out, and others have to be pushed in and then turned. We recommend using a cloth to perform this task, so that if it breaks you don’t cut yourself. You should also use a cloth when installing the new bulb because oils on your hands can damage it. Be sure to rotate the new bulb so that its firmly in place.
Step 5 – Now go switch on your breaker, turn on your switches, and make sure the bulb works. However, you only want to turn it on for a second or two and then turn it off. This is very important. Turn the power back off and then put the fixture back together. We highly recommend changing the lens gasket at this time.
Step 6 – Submerge the fixture in your pool and make sure there aren’t any leaks. You will know if there is a leak because bubbles will be escaping.
Step 7 – Coil the cord back in the light’s niche and then install the fixture. Putting the final screw back into place may take more than one try. You can use a scuba mask to see into the water if you’re having trouble. Remember not to throw a tantrum in frustration or you could break the lens.
Step 8 – Turn on your pool light and crack open a cold one. You earned it.
