Product Description

The new PT-6000 has been designed specifically for the seamless conversion of an existing fiber optic pool lighting system to a LED pool lighting system. The PT-6000 is a remote control power center for the LED Underwater Light family products.

The PT-6000 is powered by 120VAC and converts to 12V through two separate 30 watt transformer’s circuits. Each transformer can control up to FIVE Fiberstars LED products. FOUR Treos can be operated on Circuit Number One and up to FOUR Light Streams Laminars could be operated on Circuit Number Two. Circuit Number One and Circuit Number Two can be synchronized with the push of a button on the remote control unit. You can use an existing Fiberstars fiber optic illuminator base for installation.

Easy as 1 - 2 - 3

1. Pull out the old lens and fiber.

2. Pull in your New Treo LED Underwater Light.

3. Change old Tower to NEW LED PT-6000.

We need to replace our Fiberstar system. Does this have everything included. We currently have the original fiber to the lens. Is this the entire package??
 Reply

Hi. This does not include everything, the PT-6000 Lighting Kit is the entire package that you will need to replace your existing FiberOptic underwater light(s).

We currently have a PT- 6000 fiber system #584301. It consists of 6 multi strand fiber optic lights. The tower needs to be replaced but I want to keep the existing fiber. Will this LED retrofit work?
 Reply

A  Answered on 3/29/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

No, this system is designed to convert a fiberoptic system to led lights. If you want to use the pre-existing fiber with a new tower please view our illuminator page here

Hi, Tony. Check to see if the toggle switches are in the correct positions. If that's not the problem, you can use the troubleshooting step located on page 6 and 7 of the SR Smith PT-6000 Installation Manual

I just had the SR Smith 6000 tower installed. The remote seems to be antiquated. I must be missing something. In order to change the color, or color pattern, I must keep shutting off the lights. Is there a better remote, or can I program what I like to come on automatically when I turn them on? Are there instructions with a list and orderof color schemes that I can use?
 Reply

A  Answered on 7/21/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Melody. There is not another remote that can be used with this unit. I would check to make sure the toggle switches are in the correct position. You can not program a specific color, the colors are white, blue, green, red, amber, and magenta.

When installing as a retrofit to an existing fiber optic system, does the pool have to be drained below where the existing light is? Can a light be "snaked" down the conduit instead?
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/13/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Aaron. The water of the pool does not have to be lowered in order to complete the installation. It can be snaked through the conduit.

Hello, my light is not functioning properly. Shortly after turning the unit on, the light will turn off. After letting it cool off, you can turn it back on but again the light will turn off by itself. Is there a part that I can replace?
 Reply

A  Answered on 8/10/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

You will want to check how many watts you have going to each channel. The wattage can not exceed 30 watts per channel. If the watage is correct, I would recommend calling SR Smith to trouble shoot. You can reach them at 1 (800) 824-4387.

I have the old Fibrestar system that has failed completely. Currently there are 3 lights installed in the walls of the pool and spa. In addition, above the water level, there is a light strip going around both the pool and spa. I do not know if that strip is in working condition. What is the procedure for removing the old lights and sealing the new ones? If the light strip has failed, how can I replace it, and what part should be ordered?

A  Answered on 5/21/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, David. You can use the PT-6000 Lighting Kits as an option for replacing your current fiber optic pool lighting. You can make the conversion in Easy as 1 - 2 - 3. 1. Pull out the old lens and fiber cables. 2. Pull in your New Treo LED Underwater Light. 3. Change old Tower to NEW LED PT-6000. More info can be found in the S.R. Smith Treo Owner's Manual.

I have a 10 yr old fiberstar with a wheel illuminating the fiber optic cable. It is corroded out/broken and I bought the PT6000 thinking it had a LED illuminator in it for the fiber cable. Is there a kit I can get to put in the box to light the fiber cable. Or can I install one of the old color wheels and lights? I want to avoid the major job of digging out the side of the pool to replace the existing lens and fiber cable - I'll simply go without a light before I do that. Thanks
 Reply

A  Answered on 2/27/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

The illuminator that replaces the color wheel illuminator is part number IL-ION-8000-SB.

how can I clean the tips of the fiber by the bulb
 Reply

A  Answered on 2/27/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, James. You can not clean the fiber tips. You will have to re-port the fibers by cutting off the bad section of the fibers with a hot knife.

Hello Mike, The Fiberstars PT-6000 LED Power Tower does not include lights or a cover. If you need lights in addition, I would recommend the PT6000, (3) TREO LIGHTS AND REMOTE - 3TR-PT-6000 that includes the light, cover, and (3) three lights.
