Pool Lighting Problems

One common problem with pool lights is when trying to install a new light the cord gets stuck in the conduit. One solution is to splice the wire and convert the light to a low voltage light as shown below

The splice above is water tight by Blue Square Mnufacturing. This particular light is a Vivid 360 color changing light 12 volts, link to site below:

Blue Square Manufacturing light above Vivid 360 color light 12 volts. Below, I installed a 14 volt transformer on the existing junction box made by Hayward Pool Products

Another problem with pool lights is when trying to install a GFIC (ground fault interupter circuit) to make a light safer is you get nuisance tripping. This can be caused by the connection from breaker panel to switch,from the switch to the light junction box,or the light itself. The most important thing is to have the light protected so having a GFIC right on the light junction box avoids nuiance tripping as shown below:
