Most older swimming pools typically use incandescent light fixtures with bulbs similar to flood lamps. While this meets your safety needs for illuminating your pool after dark, it does nothing for ambiance and it’s a major drain on your electric usage. Upgrading an old pool lighting system offers many benefits you simply can’t afford to overlook.
- Custom solutions featuring state-of-the-art technology
- Broad range of pool lighting upgrades
- Flexible design options
- Cohesive lighting to enhance the entire area
- Increased visibility and safety
- Electrical savings with energy-efficient LED lighting
- Specialized knowledge of the unique wiring requirements of pools
- Jandy automation system to control lighting from a computer or smart phone
At night, a well-lit swimming pool provides a unique atmosphere for all your poolside parties. Lighting is also installed for safety by allowing swimmers and guests to clearly see everything from the pool’s edges all the way to the bottom. The lighting you choose should increase your pool’s safety by not only improving visibility, but also highlighting transitional areas like stairs, diving boards and water features. Corbin Electrical Service’s modern submerged LED pool lights are safe and illuminate the water more effectively than old incandescent bulbs.
Low Electric Usage
Although incandescent lamps are cheaper to purchase, upgrading to a more energy-efficient LED lighting system reduces your electric bills. Incandescent lights can burn up to 500 watts of energy per hour; compared to the 20 to 50 watts you’ll enjoy with LED lights. Overall, eco-friendly LED pool lighting uses up to 85% less electricity. This reduction can pay for the upgrade in two years or less. Corbin Electrical provides energy-efficient LED lights with a broad range of pool lighting upgrades available.
Long Life & Limited Maintenance
Aging pool lighting systems come with bulbs rated for about 1,000-2,000 hours of use, but Corbin’s modern pool LED bulbs last much longer than incandescent, halogen or metal halide bulbs. LED bulbs can last up to 50,000 hours! This cuts down on maintenance time and costs by requiring less replacements. Plus, LED systems run cool and don’t have any moving parts to maintain, like some fiber optic lighting systems that require a motor and color wheels.
In the past, all pool lighting was white, then manufacturers created snap on lenses to add color to incandescent bulbs. However, this limited color won’t compare to the vibrant colors you’ll discover with LED lights. Corbin Electrical makes it easy to upgrade with a vast selection of LEDs that fit in niches that formerly housed old incandescent bulbs. Plus, they come in a profusion of colors to enhance your outdoor experience and match a desired theme.
