Will this replace my older Purex 6422 pool light?

A  Answered on 4/22/2013 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Yes, this will replace the older Purex 6422 pool light. You will need to match you current wattage and voltage with your replacement.

A  Answered on 7/22/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi David, The Pentair Amerlite can be used as a replacement for the Anthony Pool light depending on the model niche used. If you can provide the model I can confirm.

Will this fixture replace my Pac-Fab pool light. I can't read the fixture # but the dimensions seem to be the same. The Pac-Fab housing # is 0123xx 6515. I would like to order the fixture as soon as possible if it will fit. If it won't could you recommend one that will. Thank you.

A  Answered on 8/6/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Joe. This fixture will fit the Pac Fab Hatteras Niche

I have a Pentair 78210500 stainless steel niche. Will the Amerlite 78448100 fit? Can I remove the 120v light bulb and replace it with the PureLine PureColors Color Changing 12 volt LED bulb? 100 watt 12 volt AC transformer will be added.

A  Answered on 11/5/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Hi Richard, yes this Pentair Amerite is compatible with your niche model 78210500. Also, the pool light needs to match the bulb being used with it so a 12-volt bulb cannot be used in a light designed for 120 voltage.
