Swimming pools have become more and more of a center piece for backyard entertaining. While they typically include some kind of light that makes it possible for night swimming, they generally only included a single color light. These lighting systems consisted of a single or multiple powerful 500 watt bulbs that were designed to flood the area under the water with light. The 120v lighting systems use a whole lot of power for every hour that they are turned.
Today, the old style incandescent light bulbs are being replaced by a much more energy efficient technology called LED. These new LED bulbs use considerably less amounts of energy to produce the equivalent light. There is another bonus that comes with LED’s, multiple colors can be produced and easily controlled.
