DO YOU KNOW WHAT POOL OWNERS ARE REALLY LOOKING FOR WHEN IT COMES TO LIGHTING?
Pool owners have identified 3 key features they seek from lighting solutions.
All indicators are pointing to pool lighting as one of the fastest growing categories within the pool equipment and accessories marketplace. The demand for new pool lighting solutions among pool owners is primarily driven by 3 features:

The upgrade market continues to grow. Tens of thousands of swimming pools still have old fiber optic lights that were installed back in the 80's and 90's and are just waiting for newer, brighter, more cost and energy efficient lights. Although LED has been around for a while now, previously, it was simply not worth the expense and time it took to upgrade.
Today, there are a number of lighting manufacturers that offer a power tower solution to retrofit existing fiber systems with newer, more cost and energy efficient options. Towers are available with wireless remote control, internal transformers, and the ability to sync to LED lighting products to create ambiance.
