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.

The ss ring that the pilot screw goes into is broken. Can I just replaced that ring or do I have to replaced the whole Niche? Can I buy just the ring?

Patrick, Is this for a small spa light or a larger pool light? This will help us determine the correct part for you.

Last week I purchased your Pentair SpaBrite light fixture 78106200. When I went to install it I noticed that my Pentair Niche 78241xxx/78242xxx has a metal tab on the top that the light fixture screws into is broken. Do I need to replace the niche? I think so because I don't see how else I can connect fixture as that is a grounding screw for the fixture. This would be going into a fiberglass pool/spa. I am trying to replace my spa light with the correct parts.Thanks for your guidance.

Hi Greg, you would not want to replace the entire niche as this would be a major construction project. I would suggest this Light Wedge Repair Kit which is designed for your exact situation where the tab on the light niche breaks off.

Is this niche compatible with the Pentair PL5860 in a vinyl tub?

Yes, but these are not currently in stock.
