Don’t let the setting of the sun make the day go down on your swimming pool time. Whether you’re building a new pool or renovating a current one we want to share the benefits of LED pool lighting. Not only are LED lights beautiful, but they are long-lasting, energy-efficient and can be easily automated.

The swimming pool contractors from Tipton Pools in Knoxville, Tennessee can work with you to upgrade and update your pool lighting. If you had your pool constructed and didn’t consider in pool lighting, we suggest you add it during a reno simply because it adds to the safety of the time spent in the pool when the sun sets.

LED lights are light-emitting diodes that can illuminate the pool and your hot tub and even water features with a stunning array of lights. LED lighting is found in blues, white, jewel-tones, golds and any color in between.

The benefits of LED pool lighting

When having LED light systems installed you are able to add automation so you can turn the lights on and off at the flip of a switch or even through an app on your phone. You can also control not only the colors, but the intensity of those colors through automation or an app. Imagine being able to choose the colors for the lighting of your pool to match the theme of a party you’re hosting!

The LED technology will last for thousands of hours before you need to change them. LEDs also don’t have any moving parts or bulbs that will require a service call.

Energy-efficiency is another of the many benefits LED lighting brings with it. When you compare the cost of running LED lights compared to incandescent lighting you will see a definite decrease in your utility bills.

LED lights can illuminate swimming pools with a “deep end” of up to eight feet.

Drama through light shows! 

This, we think is one of the major benefits of having LED lighting in the swimming pool. Imagine setting up the lights to provide a color changing light show when you’re hosting your next party. If you are having a Fourth of July party, you can program red, white and blue lights for the event! Your guests will definitely be ooh-ing and aahhh-ing when they take in the drama of the changing lights.

If you’re just starting a swimming pool project ask your contractor if he provides LED lighting as part of his construction package. Tell him you’re interested in them and ask to see examples of them at work in a pool!
