A good light from a company that has had a good reputation over many years. Certainly worth considering as an option if you are... Aqua Quip Pool Light Review

Manufacturers RRP: $377.00 including GST (multi colour is $441.00)

  • Adapts to replace pretty much any previous brand of surface mounted light
  • Good after sales service from Aquaquip
  • Will ``talk`` with a couple of remote systems so you can set the colour easily (multi-colour option only)
  • ``Multi voltage`` to will suit any previous sized pool light transformer
  • Very bright (with option for stronger on special request)
  • LED equals long lasting and energy efficient
  • Install with bracket to avoid the possibility of unsightly stains in the future
  • Make sure it is installed by an electrician or a pool tech to avoid water penetrating into the wiring
  • Don't let the light be used as a step! It will break the bracket (if you are lucky) or the actual light itself

Ease of install:

We’ve given this product an 8 out of 10, not because it is particularly easy to install, but more so because it is easier to install than other pool light brands. Aquaquip has come up with a very clever cable connection for the back of the light which is great.

Warranty:

We’ve given the light a solid 7 out of 10 for warranty because 12 months is pretty much standard for pool lights. Aquaquip are quite good with their after sales and warranty service.

User friendly:

If you have a standard single colour light then this could not be more user friendly as all you have to do is flick the switch on! We have only given the light a 6 out of 10 because if you have a multi colour version and want to stick the light on one single colour rather than have it scroll through a series, it can be a little confusing with flicking switches on and off. It is a great feature to have, mind you, just a little confusing to get on top of at the start. There are some remote controlled or app style tools that can negate the need for this but they can be quite costly.

Appearance:

Pool lights are pool lights. As far as “wall mounted” lights like this style go, they just are what they are. The good thing about this light is that it hasn’t changed design for 20-30 years so if you are replacing old Aquaquip lights, but not all at the same time, then they will look the same as the old ones (excluding the bracket)

Helpful hints:

As mentioned above, DO NOT USE THE LIGHT AS A STEP. This goes for all lights! It will surely lead to a shortened life, and could lead to a badly cut foot too.

Do your pool technician a favour and try to replace lights in late Spring, Summer or early Autumn. That water gets pretty cold to reach down into to pull the old light off the wall!

In summary:

A good light from a company that has had a good reputation over many years. Certainly worth considering as an option if you are looking at replacing lights.
