Learn more about what to consider when transforming your backyard swimming pool into a glowing oasis.

Are you currently in the middle of building your swimming pool and can’t decide how much lighting you need? TriStar supports you from the design to the lighting installation and will help provide the swimming pool of your dreams. Keep reading to learn more about what to consider when transforming your backyard into a glowing oasis. 

Contact a Professional

For a successful lighting installation, it is essential to hire a professional! Water and electricity are two elements that require full safety measures. It’s also important to note the choice of equipment as another safety point. A high risk of electrocution will occur if the product is of poor quality. Do not overlook this safety element and contact only qualified people for your lighting services.

Avoid These Mistakes

We understand you want to protect and get the most out of your investment. Below are mistakes you should avoid if you don’t wish for disappointing results:

  • A lot of lights in your pool. Too many surrounding your swimming pool is not always a good idea. Your pool can receive a beautiful contour with a minimum of lights.
  • Inaccurately positioning the swimming pool lights. The lights set at mid-height will provide you with the best effect, highlighting the depth of the pool. This position will make changing the lighting equipment effortless.
  • Choosing an unwelcoming color. Deciding on the color of lighting is important as well. A neutral or warm white allows for a welcoming effect for your friends and family.  

Illuminate Your Swimming Pool with LED Lighting

Besides protecting the environment, LED pool lighting will save you money in the long run. LED pool lighting is economical to operate because of its lower-than-average wattage. Additionally, LED pool lighting is known for its extended lifespan. One LED pool light can create the same light as an incandescent bulb but with increased longevity.
