Pool lights are installed along the interior walls of an in-ground swimming pool and feature specialized housing and components for safe operation. Pool lights are recessed and securely sealed to prevent water infiltration and can help to transform the look and feel of your outdoor environment.


Hoffman Electrical & A/C can help turn your vision of a more aesthetically pleasing, functional outdoor living space into reality, with the installation, replacement, or repair of your pool lighting. Options include:


Older model pools may have been outfitted with incandescent bulbs, although this technology is considered outdated by today's standards due to limited options and comparatively high energy consumption.


This energy-efficient alternative to traditional incandescent bulbs has a number of significant benefits that include:

  • Produces less heat
  • Cost less to operate
  • Longer life span of approximately 30,000 hours compared to 5,000 hours for an incandescent bulb
  • Provides a brighter light while consuming less energy
  • Available in single color or multicolored bulbs


Color-changing LED lights are a fun way to customize your pool area and landscaping, and they can produce a fixed light or be pre-programmed to put on a light show display using a remote control device.

Pool Lighting Frequently Asked Questions

Can you replace a pool light without draining the pool?

It is not necessary to remove any water from the pool in order to replace the bulb or the pool light housing. In most instances, it is necessary to enter the pool to access the screw that attaches the housing to the pool, and once removed, the housing may be elevated to the pool deck level to complete the task.

Can a pool light electrocute you?

An inground pool light that is installed by a licensed professional in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications and local building codes poses no risk of danger or electrocution.

Can you change a pool light underwater?

Pool lights and housing should be changed above the water level to ensure the interior of the housing assembly is free of moisture.
