What is the difference between a niche and a light?

A  Answered on 10/8/2013 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

A niche is a housing that is permanently mounted in the pool wall, while the light is a “fixture” that is secured into the niche.

Hello Bill- Unfortunately no, the Stainless Steel Fiberglass/Vinyl Pool Niche 1" - 78232500 is for fiberglass and vinyl pools only.

I'm installing a fiberglass pool and like the intellibrite 5G lights. Which niche should I use? I found instructions for spabrite and aqualite niches. But it appears the intellibrite doesn't have instructions for fiberglass pools.

Hi. This Stainless Steel Fiberglass/Vinyl 1" Pool Niche - 78232500 is the correct niche.

    Thanks for the quick reply. In the documents section for this niche it only shows install instructions for concrete and gunnite pools. Can you direct me to instructions for installing this niche in a fiberglass pool.

How is the Stainless Steel Fiberglass/Vinyl Pool Niche 1" - 78232500 fastened to the metal wall panel in my pool I’m installing? When I cut the metal wall panel how does the niche get installed.... from back side of the pool or from inside the pool?

Jack, it sounds like you are trying to install this light in an above ground pool is that correct?

I was replacing my pool liner and decided to replace the pool niche as well.

Written on 6/15/2020 by Guest

I removed the screws of the previous niche and had to cut the solid 1 inch pipe that was going to the junction box. I attached the new niche to my pool hole along with the gaskets and screwed it in place. I also installed a new 1 inch PVC pipe from the niche to the junction box.

Were these instructions helpful?
