What Are The Benefits of Swimming Pool Lighting

If you are building a new home that includes a swimming pool or if you currently own a home with a pool, you may not have thought about adding lighting to your pool. The good news is, pool lighting can be installed in your swimming pool at any time.

In Southwest Florida, due to our warmer climate and pool heaters, people can enjoy their swimming pool throughout the year. There are a variety of benefits to illuminating your pool including:

Safety - If you like to take a late night swim, pool lighting will allow you to see through the water so you can easily know if there is something in your pool that doesn't belong. Also, if there are people around and you have a problem, they will be able to see you in the pool.

Entertaining - With the tap of a finger, you can control the pool's lighting with an app on your phone. You can change the color, set up automatic color changes and more. Lighting can also be incorporated into fountains and other types of water features.

Accentuates the Surroundings - Pool lighting highlights a beautiful pool deck, pool walls and architectural accents.

Enhances Mood - You can set up the pool lighting to create the mood you want. For example, if you are having a 4th of July celebration, you can make the lighting red, white and blue. If it is a date night, you can make the pool lighting red, which experts say is the color for romance.

Lights Up The Pool Area - Pool lighting spills over to surrounding deck areas making it easier to see your footing between the pool and pool deck.

LED Pool Lighting Information

You can’t have a discussion about the future of pool illumination without talking about LED pool lights. LED lighting offers numerous benefits that standard pool lighting simply doesn’t. LED lighing uses less energy and you can expect about 85% less energy usage than standard pool lights plus LED bulbs can last 50 times longer.

In addition to less energy consumption and a significantly longer lightbulb lifespan, LED pool lighting also requires less maintenance and the colors are brighter and more vibrant.

If you want to add a unique sense of elegance to your residential or commercial pool? Implementing specialty lights can enhance the atmosphere around and in any pool for any situation. Whether you’re planning on throwing more pool parties or making the most of relaxing nights, specialty pool lights will transform the mood of any backyard, community or resort pool.
