Pool lighting was considered functional rather than a component of the pool design itself. Lighting can enhance the mood your pool adds to the backyard. Lights can be installed beneath the water’s surface and can be run on a light-board set up type system where the pool owner can change the color and brightness with the touch of a few buttons. Having a party and want to add ambiance? Flip a few switches. Looking into a relaxing, romantic night at home, turn the lights to an amber glow and you’re all set.
Colors, the arrangement and the power of illumination, can do so much more than simply light up the pool so your children can swim safely at night.
Discuss lighting options when you meet with your pool contractor as they are easier to incorporate during the install than after. However, if you have a pool in need of a remodel, you can add lighting to the project. Ask about installing waterproof light switches beneath the waters’ surface so you can choose the types of lights you want to run without leaving the comfort of the swimming pool.
