Benefits of LED Pool Lights

When you install a custom pool or spa, you will need to consider what sort of lighting you would like to utilize. The three main options are incandescent bulbs, halogen, and light-emitting diode (LED) pool lights. Of the three, LED lights are the most energy-efficient and customizable option.

Here are some of the benefits of installing LED lights in your pool:

Energy Efficiency

When you build a custom pool, you should consider the long-term cost of each feature in addition to the initial price. LED lights, depending on the size and type, may cost slightly more than incandescent or halogen lights. However, LED produces a brighter light than both other types of pool lights and it does so while using less electricity. Incandescent pool lights may cost up to $1 a day to operate, whereas LED pool lights cost pennies a day. This translates to serious savings over the life of your pool.


A swimming pool is an investment and you want to know that your pool will last for years to come. At Pools by Design, we choose the best features made from the highest-quality materials to help ensure that your pool is built for beauty and longevity. LED pool lights are incredibly durable compared to other pool lighting options. An incandescent bulb only lasts about a year before it starts to dim. Comparatively, an LED light can last up to 20 years, all while producing brighter light at a lower daily cost.

Unique Colors

Incandescent lighting makes it possible to swim at night, but the color is not very interesting or unique. When you choose LED lights, you have many more options when it comes to color. You can highlight certain areas of your pool, such as water features, with different colored lights. Some bulbs even allow you to use an app or a remote to change the color of your pool lights whenever you would like. You can choose themed colors for pool parties or even create your own custom light shows.

Brighter Lights

When you go for a swim or a dip in your hot tub at night, you want to be able to see your pool. While incandescent or halogen underwater lights are bright enough to get the job done, it takes a lot more energy to produce the same brightness as LED lights. Even at a lower wattage, LED pool lights are brighter. This is better for your safety and for the look of your custom pool.

Choosing the Right Pool Lights For Your Jacuzzi

There are many steps in designing your custom pool and spa. Pools by Design is here to help you every step of the way, from the big picture all the way to the tiniest details. Choosing pool lights may not seem like an important step, but this small detail can change the overall ambiance of your pool and spa. When you choose to install a jacuzzi in your backyard, you probably look forward to spending nights in your hot tub relaxing and enjoying yourself. Choosing the correct lights can improve this experience.

Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing jacuzzi pool lights:

The Importance of Pool Lights

Why do you need underwater light at all in your hot tub? You may be focusing on the overall design of your pool and spa, but it’s important not to forget about the details. When you lounge in your spa at night, you need to be able to see what you are doing. Pool lights in your hot tub make this possible.

However, choosing the right light fixtures is about more than practicality. Your lights can add elegance to your spa design. Imagine coming outside to your backyard and seeing your pool and spa brightly lit and sparkling. This is the feeling Pools by Design wants you to achieve. When you pick your pool lights, everything from color to the type of light bulbs influences the overall feel of your backyard oasis.

Why Should You Use LED Light Fixtures

When it comes to pool lights, LED bulbs are a clear choice. For one thing, they are less expensive than traditional incandescent lights. They are also more energy-efficient. This saves you money in the long run on your electricity bills. Since owning a pool comes with higher maintenance costs, any money you can save makes a huge difference.

Putting LED pool lights in your spa and pool walls also makes your water look more vibrant. Even one simple white light bulb makes your backyard feel more luxurious. LED lights also let you get more out of your spa. You are not limited to enjoying your new pool and spa only during the day. You can spend cool desert nights relaxing in your well-lit hot tub.

Customizing Your Pool Lights

You can customize the pool lights in your jacuzzi any way you would like. At Pools by Design, we pride ourselves on working with your vision to create a spa that is unique to you. If you want accent lighting to highlight certain design elements of your spa, we can include this. If you want LED lights in various colors for a more modern spa design, we can accommodate this as well.

You can make your hot tub’s pool lights as simple or as intricate as you would like. If you want something truly spectacular, you can even include remote control of your light fixtures. This lets you change the color and brightness to create your very own light shows in your spa. This feature can take your parties to the next level.
