One of the most dramatic yet often overlooked components of custom swimming pool and outdoor design is the proper application of pool and landscape lighting. In Tucson our outdoor living spaces are used and enjoyed year round so proper lighting makes our balmy nights even more enjoyable. Taking this aspect into consideration with swimming pool design, the pool and spa lights should be located to illuminate the entire body of water without creating unnecessary shadows or glare. Often the best way to light an irregularly shaped pool of water is to use multiple light fixtures. With the Pentair LED GloBrite Low Voltage lights that are now available, the fixtures can be located in shallow water to better handle lagoon, steps and water features. They also have cool color changing capability that allows the homeowner to choose one of five fixed colors or from seven different pre-programmed light shows! At Pools by Design we generally incorporate an automatic controller to control the pool, spa, landscape and water feature lighting with a Pentair EasyTouch or IntelliTouch Control System. This gives the homeowner complete control of their backyard lighting and pool features with a handheld remote control or with ScreenLogic on their smart phone or tablet!
