The backyard swimming pool is perfect for a sunny, Saturday afternoon; but what about at night? The fun shouldn’t be restricted to daylight only, which is why you need to invest in a legitimate pool lighting system. Pool lighting has a variety of visual effects, and not mention, you get an added boost of safety.
Underwater LED Lighting
Specifically, underwater lights that are flush-mounted. These are the type of lights that are mounted inside the pool walls, and they actually have more durability than other fixtures. The reason for this style growing in popularity is because it doesn’t stick out like older pool lighting models. You can also insert fresh LED lights. LED lights consume less energy, which inherently makes them more effective environmentally. They also refrain from using glass, which makes for a much more reliable fixture.
Surface-Mounted Underwater LED Lighting
These are essentially the same thing, with the only difference being that they are not flush-mounted. However, that is also what makes them easier to install. A surface-mounted light will also have a stronger overall lighting effect.
While the pool lighting itself is an integral part of your design, the surrounding areas are also crucial. Garden lighting is an effect that illuminates your landscaping efforts. It’s a subtle feature, and not entirely necessary in a sense, but it will certainly bring your design to life if you choose to employ it.
While there are schemes that bring light to the entire pool, there are also techniques that highlight one specific area. For example, you can light up waterfalls, landscaping, or even the area surround your waterslide. This is a preferred LED lighting method, but it can be completed with Halogen lighting as well.
