After advice please. One of the pool lights, affixed to the wall in the deeper end of the pool has water inside it. Builder's guarantee is worthless, as he hasn't even started on the house problems despite all manner of promise.

How is it possible to resolve this problem myself and what will be the likely cost of having it professionally completed by a reputable firm/individual with a 3 year guarantee which he would honour.

Any suggestions/advice/recommendations very much welcomed.

Many thanks

The pool lights supplied here don't last 5 minutes. We had one replaced, used it a few times & then it filled with water again. We've given up trying to replace.

Once you take a pool light apart to change the lamp, it is almost impossible to get it to re-seal again. 9 times out of 10 they fill with water within a few weeks/months.

We now fit all our new pools with LED lights which have no lamps to blow and don't need taking apart. Lights come with a 1 year warranty.

Not sure how getting water in the transformer can be the fault of the light. The transformer is in the pump room the light is in the pool.

Our experience is that these lights are very reliable.

Sorry Cyprusairsoft

Got to agree with Vaughn onh both counts always leak after replacing the lamps and The transformer should be in the pump room so how water can get into it, as well as the transformer for LED lights usually being totally enclosed beats me

I have had LED lights now for over 12 months and on problem.But they were purchased in the UK brought into the TRNC maybe thats the reason they have lasted

Who knows

Had the same problem. I am at the moment trying a different light, if the same happens I think that I will take apart and seal with silicon then treat them as disposable when the light goes. The other option is to let the water go above the light before switching on and wait for them to corrode away.

Thank you all for the responses. LED lights - available here or where in UK? Standard size, self-fitting, etc? I am a DIY disaster area.

There is of course the option of not using inpool lights or site them elsewhere. Our visitors have always complained of increased bites from "midgies" when bathing with pool lights on. If it is true that those on strike at Ercan keep turning the runway lights off to cause aircraft to abort landings I certainly do not wish to attract a "midgie" the size of a Boeing 747 or the like. My Wildebeest (bless her) already empties the pool when she jumps in !

I agree - we have never used our pool lights - don't want to attract anymore flying things !



Waste of time IMO, just another thing to cuase problems and leaks
