The latest pool underwater lights are recessed into the concrete wall to provide a flush mounted light lens.
Flush mounted lights are less likely to be used as a foot hold to help get out of the pool.
The light is encased in a plastic canister that if set into the concrete at concrete pouring stage.
The light fitting is installed after the pool has been plastered and is one of the last jobs in the construction schedule.
A range of coloured edge trims are available to enhance the appearance.
The light cable is placed in an electrical conduit at the back of the light canister and the other end is located at the filtration position or an alternative location to suit the client’s light switch position.
