I just bought a older home, It had a Hayward 12v light in the pool, when I took it out to replace bulb I noticed there’s no nitch it was screwed into the (I believe what should hold the nitch.) Do I need... a nitch and if so how do I figure out which type?

A  Answered on 6/30/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Megan C.

Yes, you should have a niche for proper installation of the light fixture. It is best to install the same manufacturer niche with pool light fixture for compatibility. Please contact our office with more details of the model or series of the pool light fixture, the diameter, and depth of the hole the niche will be installed to.

I'm replacing my niche in my gunite pool; because there's a leak behind it. I updated my light but never changed the niche, and the old one was to big and the light just sort of hung on. I'm looking to put the right niche in; how do I remove the old one.

A  Answered on 6/30/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Ed. To remove the old niche, you will have to chisel away the plaster around it. Then install the new niche using the instructions provided in the Large Plastic Niche Installation Procedures.

My 7 yrs old Pentair Amerilite White is leaking water from the pool light housing. Do I need to replace niche and light?

A  Answered on 6/14/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Andy O.

Hello BS- No, you would only need to replace the light fixture itself. These lights are water cooled so there will always be water behind the light.

Good afternoon Lofty, You are looking for Large Plastic Pool Niche Concrete - 79206700

?     Asked on 9/8/2016by Trevor

My gunite pool is older. (~30yrs) Would I need to replace the current niches? How are the Pentair niches for retro fitting the older pools?

A  Answered on 9/9/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

You wouldn't necessarily have to change out the niches. I would get the dimensions (diameter and depth) first to see if the fixture that you are wanting to go with will fit your existing niche.

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.
