When installing a swimming pool in a garden, the lighting is often in the background of the project.
But reasons such as safety or the decisive participation in the night decoration of the garden make us to rethink the value of the lighting of our future swimming pool. Not considering the effect of correct light can constitute a mistake that unfortunately has no easy solution once the work of our brand new swimming pool is finished. Or maybe it has?
Discover in this article the best tips in pool lighting for your next project to be a success.
One of the best ways to integrate the pool into our garden is through beautiful lighting. The light will highlight and dazzle the pool area. Surrounded by our beautiful garden, when night has already fallen, and there is no natural light to appreciate the exterior aesthetics of our house and garden the illuminated pool becomes the centre of all gaze.
Safety at all times.
As we have commented, the lighting of the swimming pools meets certain functional, practical and safety aspects.
On summer nights we like to make outdoor dinners and enjoy our garden. In this way, we can also enjoy evening parties in the pool, walk through the garden and the pool area with total safety and give ourselves refreshing baths on the hottest nights without risk of an unforeseen trip.
How to choose the right lighting.
To install the pool lights, it is not enough just to choose the type and model, and to proceed with their installation. There are some important aspects and points to pay attention to.
1. To determine the number of spotlights.
2. To determine the depth of placement.
3. To determine the location of the light sources.
We must not forget the shape of the pool to place the lighting.
In the case of curved pools with organic shapes such as kidney, the angles of the curves should not exceed 10/20 degrees.
4. Aesthetic and decorative considerations.
All technical aspects are fundamental in the area of pool lighting, but what about aesthetics? If we want our swimming pool to be in tune with our garden, we must also pay attention to them
Thanks to the pool lighting we can create all kinds of really nice effects in our gardens if we know how to play with them and with their location.
For these cases, there are specific recommendations, which are worth considering.
5. Determination of the type of lighting.
But if your pool is already built and you forgot the lighting detail, don’t worry. You’re still in time with the pool lights overlayed, which are placed with screws and studs. In this type, we find different lamp type projectors, both LED and halogen light. The most recommendable is LED bulbs, which provide the same light intensity as the others by wasting less energy. Within the LED pool spotlights, we can find many types of light. There are lamps with white light or RGB LED of variable colour, with which we can create infinite luminous effects thanks to its combination of colours.
Nowadays, there are many lighting options, which adapt to the pockets, needs and tastes of each user.
You can check the pool lighting catalogue in GESTION PISCINAS to compare the different types of pool lights and choose the most suitable for your project.
We hope that you will enjoy your pool and garden this summer more than ever with these tips .
