Hi Jeff, According to the warehouse it does not indicate if it's AC or DC, but the output voltage is 12.

I have a 24' up ground pool, it is about 15 yrs old. Will this light assembly work and also is there a you tube video so that I get a better visual on the setup? Thank you,

A     Answered on 6/18/2015 by Patrick P.

Hi Ginger, this light would just install into a standard return jet fitting so you should be fine with installing this on an older pool as these jets have not changed. Unfortunately we do not have an installation video for the Aqualuminator, however we do have the AquaLuminator Installation Manual which shows the installation process.

Hi Sal, Page 5&6 of the Aqualuminator Owner's Manual go over the exact step by step instructions for replacing your bulb. These instructions should be helpful in doing this replacement, if you still have the same issue then please let us know.

Does this light have a freeze plug available?

A     Answered on 5/28/2015 by Patrick P.

Hi Jerold, The Aqualuminator Owner's Manual states that the light requires (2) #9 winterizing plugs for winterization which are sold separately. We do carry the #9 Winterizing Plugs here.

Roar- The Aqualuminator 98600000 would require the Aqualuminator Transformer and Cord Cap Assembly (83000000).

?     Asked on 7/4/2011 by Guest

I'm getting the Intex 18'x9'x 52" above ground rectangular pool. Would the aquailuminator fit the return line for that pool?

A     Answered on 7/4/2011 by Patrick P.

Unfortunately we would not suggest the Aqualuminator for an Intex pool. If your Intex pool is a soft sided pool then we would suggest this light here and if it is the Intex Metal Frame pool then we would suggest this light here

?     Asked on 6/19/2006 by Guest

Do I need to lower the water level below the inlet to install the fixture?

A     Answered on 6/19/2006 by Patrick P.

Yes it is recommended that you lower the level of your water down past the light in order to take the full light fixture out.

?     Asked on 6/6/2006 by Guest

Can you change just the light bulb or do you have to replace the entire light every time?

A     Answered on 6/6/2006 by Patrick P.

You can change just the bulb assembly. Here is the link to the bulb assembly for the 98600000 BULB ASSEMBLY

from Fayetteville, NC ()

Pros: Excellent price and quality

We ordered the Aqualuminator above ground pool light online. It was the same light as seen at a local pool place. The price was excellent and the quality is just what we expected. We had our light in just 3 working days after we ordered it. Great service!!

 (5 out of 5 stars)  perfect light for the above ground pool

from No providence <RI ()

Pros: looks great, fairly easy to install

Cons: some leaking at fitting to hoses but easily repaired

It was a fathers day gift for my husband but as soon as it arrived we put it in the pool. It makes our pool look so nice and it is getting compliments from everyone who sees it. Our pool is not new so the installation was tricky with the water in the pool. The directions were a little confusing because there was not a parts list with pictures to identify the things. We love it tho. We are concerned about what to do if the bulb burns out. Will we have to buy a whole new light?
