Then you need to mark and saw out the dimensions of the built-in part and attach the flange ring and rubber gasket. Only then can you start assembling. Exactly how to install the pool light is self-evident, but it does take some time. Would you like to do it on your own? Then feel free to ask us for advice. You'll see that with our tips, it will go much more smoothly!
How many pool lights do you need?
In principle, you do not need that many pool lights. Usually only two pool lights are sufficient. The advice is to use one spotlight every three to four metres. With two pool lights you can see enough during the dark hours. Aesthetically this is also the best amount.
Where should you place the lighting in your pool?
If you plan to install your own pool lights, it is important that you take the correct height into account. If you do not, you will be looking into a shining lamp from the terrace. And that is anything but pleasant! The ideal height for installing pool lights is 75 centimetres from the top edge and two metres from both corners of the pool.
