Pool Lighting: Why Fiber Optic is Best

Lighting, Pool Lighting, Spa Lighting, Fiber Optic LighttingThe “unofficial” start of summer is finally here! It’s time to start thinking about uncovering that pool and planning family picnics. Maybe a pool party for your recent grad? Or how about relaxing in your spa tub to celebrate the start of your “empty nest”?

No matter what your summer entertainment plans are, pool & spa lighting is something to think about. Not only does it create a fun or relaxing space, but it also addresses safety concerns with the slippery surfaces.

If you are still in the planning stages of your pool or spa space, lighting is a huge part. Things like heaters and security covers can be added or changed over time. But lighting is an expense worth doing right the first time.

Fiber optic lighting is the perfect solution. When it comes to installing lights near water, there are usually major safety risks involved. But with fiber lighting there is no electrical wiring near the water, only lights. They are designed so the bulb is located in a dry box located on top of the pool deck. The light is then carried from that box, through the fiber optic cable,  to a fitting in the pool wall where the fiber ends.

Fiber Optic Lighting Advantages:

  • These types of pool lights will never pose the risk of electric shock.
  • Fiber optic lighting allows you to choose and control the colors of your pool lights via a remote control.
  • The bulb is easy to access and can be changed in less than 5 minutes. This is because the bulb is located in a dry box on the deck, and not submersed in water.

Having your own pool or spa is like having your own private oasis. It’s where you spend time with family and friends, or go to have peace of mind. Rapid Service understands that. You can fully relax knowing that our professional electricians install all of the components  correctly.
