Underwater swimming pool lighting has come a long way. Your grandfather’s pool probably had one or two incandescent lights (if any) that shined a very concentrated beam into the pool. Advances in fiber optics and Light Emitting Diodes (LED) provide energy-efficient and aesthetically pleasing illumination for swimming pool owners. Colored lights with pre-programmed light shows can be synchronized with ambient landscape lighting to give a holiday-themed or party atmosphere. The penumbra of lighting is soft, gradual, and thorough with LED lights, providing even coverage and fewer “hot spots” inside the pool. LED lighting can also color laminar flow water jets or bubblers on a deck or sun shelf.
A sublime lighting application utilizes the polished ends of fiber optic strands at numerous locations to create a star floor. A star floor brings the luminescence of the stars in the night sky to the swimming pool floor. Stars can be placed randomly, in a pre-determined custom pattern such as a child or pet’s name, or can mimic the actual locations in the mirrored sky above, providing recognizable constellations inside the swimming pool.
