As a pool owner, you are likely always on the lookout for ways to make your pool more appealing and to increase the overall ambiance of the surrounding space.

You can create it all with these lights! This cost-effective lighting option is safe and easy to use and maintain, all while offering a brighter output when compared to other forms of pool lighting.

Seamless Integration

A niche is the housing that holds a pool light in place. It is often embedded in the wall of the pool itself. Nicheless pool lights differ in that they are designed not to need this niche. Instead, they are installed on the side walls of the pool. This distinction means that they are easier to install, and the process of replacing the lamp body is made easier as well. In essence, this nicheless design offers seamless integration into your pool, meaning that no bulky niches are getting in the way or need to be hidden from sight. Instead, nicheless lighting offers a smooth pool interior, which is superior visually and practically in terms of maintenance. These compact nicheless lights fit into most standard 1.5-inch wall fittings.

Beyond Illumination

Pool lights are worthwhile for a variety of reasons. Sure, it’s fun to have pool lights, and installing a lighting system will allow you to get more use out of your pool as you can keep swimming even when the sun goes down. However, pool lights are also beneficial because they create a safer environment for swimmers and even those just walking around the pool, thanks to their light distribution. They can also improve the security of your home, even when you aren’t using your pool, as these lights will illuminate the area around your pool into your home as well.

Modern Technology

The nicheless pool lighting system incorporates cutting-edge design for a streamlined look and better performance. For example, LED technology utilizes a thermal management system for maximum energy output. This means even though these are low-voltage LED lights, they will illuminate the space efficiently and safely. These lights are immensely energy efficient, usually using 9 to 30 watts at 120 volts alternating current VAC. These nicheless lights also don’t require bonding or grounding and feature simplified construction.

Comparison With Other Options

When considering pool lighting systems, one decision you must make is to decide between a niche light or a nicheless system. Niche lights often have large diameter openings with installation requirements that vary from brand to brand, sometimes drastically. This means that not only can installation be more complicated and costly, but so can maintenance costs when owning them over time. Cost is an important factor to consider when comparing nicheless lighting systems with other forms of lighting, especially niche varieties. As previously mentioned, nicheless is a much more affordable way to go. This is because you don’t have to worry about cutting into your pool wall or having to meet specific requirements that demand engineer details. Consequently, the cost of installation for the nicheless systems is much lower. This compact, light structure can often be easily installed, but it’s still best to have an expert do the work and ensure that you are purchasing the right type of light for your pool.

Considerations for Installation

The Spectrum 360 nicheless LED pool light from Blue Square is designed for a wide range of applications, meaning there are many varieties of ways to use these lights, and they look great in an abundance of pool styles. They can even work with systems that are already in place in some cases. However, even though these systems are designed to work well in nearly all pools, it’s still important to get the help of a pool lighting professional for specific advice that is unique to your pool and your individual preferences both in terms of looks and as far as the level of maintenance that the lights need. While you “can” do it all yourself, you will get the most out of your lighting system when you allow the professionals to help you determine what you need and how to lay out the system best in your space.
