Swimming Pool Renovations Sydney: Pool Lighting Features to Consider


Lighting fixtures can do a lot in improving the ambiance around your pool. But putting them underwater? Now that’s something that will definitely make your pool much more interesting and inviting come night time. There are plenty of lighting options available in the market, and two of these are flush-mounted and surface-mounted underwater pool lights.

Flush-mounted Underwater Pool Lights

Flush-mounted underwater pool lights are great because they do not stick out further than your pool wall does. That is, they are mounted right inside the wall of the pool, thus there are no fixtures sticking out. The main concern with these types of underwater pool lighting is that they can be quite expensive to install. That is especially true when you consider that holes must be created in the pool wall in order to accommodate these lighting fixtures. That said, it is best to have these installed during your inground pool repair or construction.

Flush-mounted underwater pool lights are available in LED and halogen variants. Between the two, more and more people are leaning towards the use of LED lights, even though halogen lights are the more affordable option. There are several reasons why this is so. For one, LED lights consume less power despite being bright, which then helps to lower the pool owner’s electricity bills. Another is that LED lighting are easier to maintain than halogen lights.

Surface-mounted Underwater Pool Lights

As the name suggests, these underwater pool lights are mounted onto the surface of the pool wall and not within. That said, they are much easier to install, and the installation can be done even after the pool is constructed. For pool owners who are undergoing swimming pool renovations in Sydney, surface-mounted underwater pool lights would be the cheaper and more practical pool lighting solution compared to flush-mounted underwater pool lights.

Just like flush-mounted underwater pool lights, surface-mounted underwater pool lights are also available in LED and halogen variants. Again, more and more pool owners prefer using LED lighting because of the same reasons mentioned above. One thing you need to remember is that they do stick out from the wall. This increases the chances of the swimmers bumping or even crashing against them.

There are plenty of lighting options available for you choose from.
