Lighting to Avoid

Even though the sky is the limit for pool lighting, there are a few things to avoid.

  • pool patio lightningDon’t use glaring lights. Install light that is soft or diffused.
  • Don’t direct your light toward seating areas. This light will shine in your eyes or distort the vision of your guests. You need lighting that will shine downward and make vision easy.
  • Don’t ever swim without lighting in deep ends and at entrances or exits.

Lighting should always be bright enough to see but soft enough to enjoy. Be sure your swimmers are safe and comfortable with the appropriate lighting.
