I'm replacing my niche in my gunite pool; because there's a leak behind it. I updated my light but never changed the niche, and the old one was to big and the light just sort of hung on. I'm looking to put the right niche in; how do I remove the old one.
Hi, Ed. To remove the old niche, you will have to chisel away the plaster around it. Then install the new niche using the instructions provided in the Large Plastic Niche Installation Procedures.
My 7 yrs old Pentair Amerilite White is leaking water from the pool light housing. Do I need to replace niche and light?
Hello BS- No, you would only need to replace the light fixture itself. These lights are water cooled so there will always be water behind the light.

Good afternoon Lofty, You are looking for Large Plastic Pool Niche Concrete - 79206700
My gunite pool is older. (~30yrs) Would I need to replace the current niches? How are the Pentair niches for retro fitting the older pools?
You wouldn't necessarily have to change out the niches. I would get the dimensions (diameter and depth) first to see if the fixture that you are wanting to go with will fit your existing niche.
