Product Description

Hayward Expert Line of products are available exclusively for purchase by brick and mortar dealers

Unlike metallic niches, DuraNiche niches are injection-molded of PVC for superior performance, non-corrosive durability and plumbing versatility - plus the lowest installed cost. The ability to accept PVC over expensive metal conduit enables DuraNiche to offer true bottom line savings in materials, as well as time to install. DuraNiche comes in three models for concrete/gunite pools, vinyl/fiberglass pools, or for concrete/gunite spas. When paired with a Hayward AstroLite or AstroLite ll light fixture, you have the best quality and value in a lighting system available anywhere.


  • Socket conduit connecton designed for quick and simple gluing to PVC pipe. Provides a cleaner, more reliable seal vs. threaded-type connections
  • All SP0600U, and SP0607U niches have a 45 degree 1" outlet, which can be adjusted for top or rear conduit connection using the 45 degree U.L. approved sweep elbow and coupling or Non-U.L. approved spigot elbow.
  • The SP0601U niche has a 1" rear outlet, which can be adjusted to 45°.
  • All 1" outlets can be quickly converted to 3/4" with either a U.L. approved reducing adapter (included)or Non-U.L. approved reducer (included).

I have a pool light in the deep end of pool and every time I replace a bulb that burns out it goes out in a week or two. Could you tell me what the problem could be or any ideas. Thanks
