Intellibrite 5g Pool Lights Specs.
I am very interested in the LED upgrade from a pentair SAM light, but the customer reviews for this product are not very good at all. Can you explain the warranty and the durability of this fixture?
These model Intellibrite lights have actually been doing fairly well. If you click here you view the warranty card per Pentair.
Will this fit into an existing pentair sam light niche? and does it need a transformer or is it incorporated into fixture as sam light was?
Yes, this will work with an existing Sam Light niche and would not need a transformer.
I have a full size pool niche in my spa, are there any smaller fixture options that will still cover the niche?
Hi, Peter. A smaller fixture will not cover the niche.
I have a 3 light, first generation intellibrite 120v, 70W system. One of the lights has failed. I can not find a first generation replacement. Can it be replaced with the second generation, 120V, 50W light and still work in conjunction with the existing two lights? If so, is this an easy process? Take out the old light, put in the new one and connect the wiring the same way as the first one was? It would be nice to have all three lights working again. Thanks
Hi, Dave. The current Intellibrite light fixtures are compatible with the first generation Intellibrite fixtures.
I'm replacing a Pentair series 600015, 600016, 600017 and 600022. It is hooked up to my Jandy Aqualink system. I'm able to cycle through colors by turning on and off. Can I control the Intellibrite 5G colors the same way? or do I need to buy the controller also? Thanks
Hi, George Martinez. You can use your AquaLink to control the Pentair Intellibrite light by turning the circuit on/off.
What is the benefit of 12v vs. 120V LED light
Hi, The top benefits of 12v that it's more energy efficient than the 120v.
Do I have to purchase a controller separately or is it included with the Intellibrite 5G Color LED?
Those controllers are sold separately. The part number is 600054. The lights can also be controlled by a standard light switch as well.
I have a Pentair series 600015/600016/600017/600022 color changing pool light. The seal went bad and water leaked into the unit. Is it possible that the unit still works? The pool is drained and light fixture removed, everything looks good except the two MR1675 watt light bulbs
Good morning Mike, The fixture can still be good. If the inside socket isn't rusted out the fixture could still be good. You will just need to replace the lens gasket and bulb.
I need to replace my fiberstars Jazz light 019652. it is suggested that i use the Pentair Intellbrite LED. my question; can I use the existing cord?
Hello Brent, Unfortunately no you cannot use the same cord because one is fiber optics and one is LED.
I bought a house with pool. The light is out. It's is Pentair 600017. What's the best way to tell if it's 12v or 120v?
Hi Ryan, The Pentair 600017 light is 120 volt so this Intellibrite (601001) will work as a replacement.
My Pentair series 600015,16,17 and 600022 expired. I'm moving shortly and want a simple 300 watt incandescent replacement. Will the Pentair 78428100 fit the existing 9.50" wide X 7.50" deep niche that is there now?
Hi, The Pentair Amerlite (78428100) will fit into the same niche as the Spectrum Amerlite.
I have a 500w halogen bulb that I would like to replace with a color changing LED. The 500w bulb provides ample, but not bright light to my pool, which is a lazy L approx. 50 ft. Do you think color will provide enough light, or should I stick with white?
Hi Joe, The Intellibrite is bright but not as bright as a 500 watt bulb, you can go with the Intellibrite 500 Watt LED White Light (601301).
I have a hayward SAM 2.0 light that I amreplacing. Would this fit the niche?
Yes the Intellibrite pool light is the replacement for the Sam light pool light.
Mike - I have a 28' long pool that houses a Pentair Model #77168100. Will this light fit into the light niche? Will it provide as much light as my 250w that Pentair that I will replace?
Hi Steve, The Intellibrite 5g 120v 50' Color LED Spa Light (640121) will replace the Pentair Model #77168100 AquaLight.
How does the light output of this LED light compare to a 300W incandescent pool light? Thanks!
Hi Mike, This LED light is not as bright as a 300w incandescent pool light.
I have the Intellibrite 5g 120V color LED pool light for 2yrs; now it doesn't change to different colors any more, even I try to switch off and on for a number of times as instructed; it shows only one deep blue color. What 's wrong with it? Are other colors dead. Do I need to replace any part or have to replace the whole fixture? Thank you!
Hi Tom, It sounds as if the board has gone out in the unit. You would be looking at replacing the complete unit
I have a Pentair SAM pool light which is no longer made. Will this replace this light with no problems
Hi Kathie, The Pentair Intellibrite Color LED Pool Light will replace the Pentair SAm Light. You would need to confirm the voltage needed.
I have 2 Pentair 863330 lights in my in-ground pool. One lights but doesn't change color. The other leaked and doesn't work at all. Is there a replacement light for these? Are there replacement parts for the electronics for these lights?
The first generation Intellibrites manufactured between 2007-2009 have a replacement engine kit being part number 60076 and the second generation Intellibrites manufactured after 2009 have a replacement kit being part number 619818Z. Both are special orders and have an approximate lead time of 2-3 weeks.
We have a Pentair series 600015, 600016, 600017 and 600022, is there a cross reference number for a replacement light?
You would have the older Pentair SAM Light which has been replaced by the new Pentair LED Intellibrite Lights. The Intellibrite lights are replacements for the SAM light and fit into the same niche as your SAM lights. When clicking through to the Pentair LED Intellibrite Lights you will just need to select if you have a pool or spa light, your voltage (12V or 120V) and your cord length.
Will the Intellibrite 5g LED fit in fiberstar niche that's 5 inches deep?
I am sorry, but no it will not fit. The dimensions of the Pentair Intellibright 5g LED are 11 x 11 x 9 inches
Can I replace a Jandy CPHV150WS50 with the Intellibrite fixture?
No, the Intellibrite 5g 120v 50' LED Pool Light 601001 will not work in a Jandy niche.
I now have 2 SAM lights in my pool controlled by my Jandy Aqualink. I would like to get 2 Pentair Intellibrite 5g lights. Will they work with my Jandy? Also will they operate together and stay in sync?
Hello Cindy - The Jandy can turn the Intellibrite lights on an off. The Intellibrite lights will stay synced up as long as they are wired to the same relay.
What size pool is recommended for the maximum effect of this light fixture?
Hello Clayton - In a pool with a light colored surface, one Pentair model 601001 is enough for a pool size up to 16'x32'. Anything larger will require multiple lights.
My pool has a dark blue surface. Can I use the Intellibrite color LED?
We would not recommend any color-changing LED lights in a dark colored pool as the colors will not show up. The 601101 Intellibrite 5g Pool LED White Light would be a better choice.
I would like to replace my existing pool light which is a Purex Model 6425 halogen with the Pentair 5G LED light. The dimensions of the pool niche is 9.5" diameter with a depth of 9". Will the 5G light fit?
What is the difference between the older version Intellibrite and the newer 5g version?
>The new 5g version has a lower wattage consumption with the same out put of light, the older version had a wattage consumption of 70 watts where the newer version has a wattage consumption of 50 watts >.
For a color-changing LED light, how do I switch between the different settings with just a standard light switch?
The LED lights are designed to move to the next programmed setting each time you turn the switch on and off. This will toggle through the different color settings and shows.
