LED swimming pool lighting

Description of Indoor Pool Lighting:

Recently, the heat wave has swept across the globe, and swimming has become the best sport in such high temperature weather. Unlike general high bay lighting, indoor pool lighting has more stringent requirements on LED flood light. In order to provide safe, comfortable and efficient lighting, a variety of complex factors need to be considered.

Modern LED pool fixtures have become the most popular option for pool lighting these days. They are more expensive than both halogen and incandescent bulbs, but they offer more features and benefits.  LED flood lights are bright and can last for a very long time. Compared to incandescent bulbs that can only take about 5,000 hours, LEDs can light your pool up for as long as 25,000 hours or even more.

Another huge advantage is that LEDs are environmentally friendly in that they are very energy efficient.  LED uses significantly less energy to create the same or better light output than either incandescent or halogen lights. 

LED allows you to choose a lighting system that comes in different colors and brightness. The lights can even be programmed to have reflective qualities, or put on a show timed to your music or theme, their versatility and options are tremendous.

Safety Guidelines of Lighting Design in Swimming Pool

The following diagram adapted from the 2014 NEC Handbook, Article 680 on accepted luminaire placement and restrictions.

①Luminaires should be mounted above 12 feet over water when no GFCI protection is provided.
②Luminaires should be mounted above 7½ feet over water when protected  by GFCI.
③Luminaires are not permitted below 5 feet.
④Only Existing rigidly attached luminaires are permitted when protected by GFCI.
⑤Luminaires are permitted if rigidly attached.
⑥Luminaires are permitted when protected by GFCI.
