Q:I need to replace my pool light but I don't know which model I have. How do I choose the right one?
A:The pool light housing should have an identification label on the side of the fixture. You will have to remove the light from the pool in order to access it. Please use extreme caution and make sure that you shut the power to the breaker off PRIOR to removing the light. If you need help on how to remove the light, you can look HERE.
Q:What is the difference between low voltage lighting and line voltage lighting?
A:Low voltage lighting refers to 12 Volts where a transformer is used to drop the voltage down from 120 to 12 Volt light. Line voltage refers to 120 Volts where there is a direct line from the power source to the light that carries 120 Volts.
Q:Will these laminars pulse or is it just a steady stream of water?

Q:What is the difference between the Fiberstars 2004 and 6004 illuminators?
A:The 2004 model has a strand capacity of 400 while the 6004 will hold 450 fiber optic strands. The 6004 has a metal halide lamp that is rated at an average of 6000 hours. The quartz-halogen lamp inside the 2004 is rated at 400-700 hours average. The 6004 model is more energy efficient than the 2004 and consumes less power.
Q:After doing a lot of reasearch, I was wondering what the difference between the Jandy and Fiberstars laminar jets is besides the cost.
A:There is not much difference between these two units. The main difference is that the Fiberstars deck box is a little shorter and the ports come through the side of the deck box instead of the bottom of the deck.
