Installing Pool Lights: Tips & Info

A beautiful pool is only truly complete with the right pool lighting. But, of course, you need to know how to go about this. Are you able to do this yourself? How many lights do you need and where exactly do you place them?

Can You Install Self Pool Lighting?
Installing pool lights in a self-built pool is generally quite doable. So you can do it just fine by yourself. Still, you need to take a few things into account. For example, you start by fixing the supplied flexible hose in your pool, mark everything and then start cutting.

Then you mark out the dimensions of the built-in part, cut it out and attach the flange ring and rubber gasket. After that, it's time to assemble. Installing pool lights is somewhat self-explanatory, but does take some time. Feel like doing it yourself? Then be sure to ask us for advice. You'll find that with our tips it goes a lot smoother!

How Many Pool Lights Do You Need?
In general, you don't need a lot of pool lights. Placing just two pool lights is often enough. The recommendation is one spotlight per three to four feet. So with two lights, you will already have enough visibility during the dark hours. This is also the best amount in terms of aesthetics.

Where Do You Place Lighting In Your Pool?
If you plan to install pool lights yourself, it is important that you pay attention to the right height. Otherwise, you'll be looking straight into a bright light from the patio, and that's not pleasant! The ideal height for installing pool lights is 65-75 centimeters from the top edge and two meters from either corner of the pool.
