?     Asked on 6/27/2016 by Patrick

I need to replace an American Product, Model CN-5 that uses an R 500 B light. Is the Amerlite 500 15' cord 120 the replacement unit that I need? My CN-5 has a length of 7.25" with a diameter of about 9".

A     Answered on 7/3/2016 by Lennox H.

Hi Patrick, The Pentair Amerlite will replace the American Product CN -5 fixture if you have also have the American Products large niche.

I had the bulb in my pool light replaced 3 months ago. There is water showing inside the glass case about 3 inches from the bottom. Is this normal? Or is the gasket bad?

A     Answered on 10/8/2015 by Hector F.

This can happen and can be from the gasket going bad, not secured correctly, or the clamp not tightened correctly.

It was nice to find this item online and pay less than they're asking at our local pool store. Delivery was fast and it fit like a glove, works great.
