This pool was designed with a number of striking lighting features. The pool and spa and all of the water features have color changing lights. At night the pool and spa will be lit up in one color while the waterfall and bubblers will show another. The four laminar will also throw columns of changing light into the pool. Samples of these lighting effects are shown below.
The lighting fixtures are powered by either 120V or 12V. The Laminar and Bubbler lights use 12V power so they require transformers to step the house power down from 120V. This picture shows the light junction boxes and transformers. The four (4) sets of power leads from the four (4) laminars are collected in the right hand junction box and fed to the right hand transformer. The two (2) sets of power leads from the two (2) bubblers are collected in the left hand junction box and fed to the left hand transformer.
Most light fixtures in and around the pool and spa require a plastic or metal niche like the one shown at left. The niche is secured in a hole constructed in the side or base of the pool and is grounded to the base grid built into the foundation of the pool. Niches are designed for concrete or fiberglass/vinyl pools.
