Product Description

The ION-8000 Fiber Optic Illminator is most commonly used to light fiber-optic swimming pool lighting. The feature which makes the ION-8000 so unique is that it uses an LED bulb unlike Metal Halide or Halogen bulbs used in almost all other illuminators. The ION-8000 is a direct replacement for popular illuminators like the Fiberstars 6000, 6004, 6008, 2004 & 2008 as well as the Supervision SV150T, SV150T6 & SV25 series.

The benfits of LED include much longer lamp life, brighter light output and lower operational costs. The ION-8000 can handle up 1,000 strands of fiber where it's competitoin has a maximum strand capacity of 450 strands. Finally the ION-8000 is a very compact unit meaning that it is about half the size of the Fiberstars & SuperVision Illuminators.

Can I use Super Vision Fiber optic cable with a Fiberstars illuminator?

A  Answered on 5/28/2006 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Both companies' cable will work with either the Fiberstars or Super Vision illuminator. You will need to make sure that you have the proper perimeter track in your pool to accommodate the appropriate cable.

We are building a wall close to the pool and thinking of a waterfall. Where does everything go? Can the pool pump be used instead of a dedicated pump? How far can the illuminator be from the waterfall? How far from the wall to where the water hits the pool? In other words, how close does the waterfall have to be to the pool?

A  Answered on 7/10/2006 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The illuminator and pump can be placed where your exisiting pool pump and filter is located. The further the distance away from your pool, the more more fiber and a higher HP pump you will need. We recommend purchasing an additional pump for a waterfall. If you use the same pump, the waterfall will take away from the existing water circulation and your pool will not be properly filtered.

I want to install the SV 150T6 or the IL-ion-8000-sb, I have not decided yet. I will be using this with 150' of the SV42 perimeter cable, is this correct the correct illuminator? If so this is a pool renovation and i want to use the SVLS 42 (which i will need 13 0f them) but i saw it is no longer available , that means that i have to use the SVTRK-42? i am right ? Thanks , in advance.

Hi Pablo, Either the SV150T6 illuminator or the IL-ion-8000-sb LED illuminator will work with the SV42 perimeter fiber optic cable. I really like ION Led Illuminator as it is very bright and the bulb lasts a very long time. The SVLS42 is no longer available and you would require the SVTRK-42 Track.

Based on the few pictures I could find online, I think I have a SV250H illuminator. Mine is so rusted I can't find any name or model number on it. What model will replace it and is there anyone in the Orlando area that you could recommend to do the work. Thanks

Hi Tyson, I would suggest the ION LED Fiber Optic Illuminator this is a great unit which is very bright, economical to operate and has a very long lamp life. For installation I would contact Visual Aquatics in Orlando they are great, let them know INYO sent you, here is there contact information

I have a Fiberstars unit model number 6004 last night I was using it and all the sudden the light went out I went over to look at it and it was very hot on top I let it cool down and then turned it on later and it worked do you know what possibly happened? Do I need a new bulb maybe?

A  Answered on 6/7/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Hello, If the bulb is still working the fan or another internal part may have failed. I would recommend going through he trouble-shooting in the owner's manual.
