Take Your Backyard Pool Up 10 Notches with LED Lighting
The sky’s the limit when it comes to designing your pool and backyard oasis. But if you want to take your backyard pool up 10 notches, consider adding LED lighting! Why, you ask? Let us tell you more!
LED Pool Lighting is More Efficient
Sure, LED lights are more expensive at the outset, but in the long run they’ll save you money. Overall, LED lights are more energy-efficient. An LED light consumes at least 75% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs.
LED Lights Last Longer
Not only do LED lights consume less energy, but they last way longer than other lighting options. Typically, an LED light lasts 20 times longer than an average light bulb. Choose LED lights and you can expect the same bulb to last YEARS — like 7-15 years. That translates to both savings on your energy bill, and savings on replacing the lights.
LED Lighting is a Great Way to Personalize Your Pool
Want to swim in a rainbow of lights? LED pool lights are the way to go! Many LED lights are color-changing. So, you get the safety features of an illuminated pool but with a fun, beautiful upgrade. You can set color-changing LED lights to cycle through a range of colors and provide a light show as you swim, or set them to just one vibrant shade. They’re as perfect for pool parties as they are for a romantic swim for two on date night.
Color-changing LED lights are great for making your pool part of the theme. Try red, white, and blue for an Independence Day gathering. Shade your pool the same colors as your birthday party theme. Or, go orange for a Halloween party or to match your fall decorations.
Even if you stick with white LED bulbs instead of colorful ones, they cast a slightly bluish light that looks great in any swimming pool!
