ProTouch offers San Diego pool equipment repairs including residential and commercial inground hot tub and swimming pool light repair. Pool and hot tub lights help make your backyard a retreat. They also offer color changing functionality and safety for nighttime use. Having functional pool and spa lights is especially important with commercial facilities. For example hotels and community pools are required by the health department to have properly working lights. Most swimming pools, spas and hot tubs have a light or lights which will eventually fail. That’s where we come in!
Our friendly team of swimming pool specialists is always ready to help with even the most challenging pool light repair. We have extensive experience working on pool lights. This helps us quickly identify issues and make the right pool light repair the first time. We care about our customers’ best interest and always recommend repairs that are actually needed.
Swimming pool light repair isn’t the easiest or safest type of equipment repair work to perform. Electricity and water are a very dangerous combination. It’s best to hire experienced professionals who have specific knowledge about these risky electrical repairs. Even simple repairs such as a light bulb replacement involves a general knowledge of electricity and mechanical understanding. In most cases, we recommend that pool light troubleshooting and repairs are performed by a professional.
We often find that when pool owners attempt their own pool light repair, they do not reassemble the light properly. This allows moisture to leak into the light housing and creates the need for additional pool light repairs. In some cases, the damage to the light fixture is so great that the entire fixture needs to be replaced.
The most common type of pool light repair involves a simple light bulb and light gasket replacement. If the light bulb is replaced quickly, more extensive damage can often be prevented to the light fixture. This reduces the chances of needing further pool light repairs. Our typical pool light repair takes 1 to 1.5 hours to complete. It depends on what area of the pool the light is located and if we need to enter the water to remove the light fixture.
Another common problem is a failing lens gasket. A leak through the watertight front rubber gasket between the lens and the fixture can cause the light to short out. After long periods of moisture exposure, the pool light fixture can become corroded and cause the light to fail permanently. A new pool light will then need to be installed.
Pool and hot tub lights can encounter moisture leaks from the back or bottom of the fixture, where the cord is attached. The attachment deteriorates and allows water to penetrate into the internal wiring. This can cause complete light fixture failure. In this case, the entire light fixture needs to be removed and replaced with a new light fixture. We offer a variety of options for new pool light fixtures and install all makes and models of fixtures including LED and color lights.
When repairing your pool light, we’ll need to remove the entire light fixture from your swimming pool or spa and set in on the pool deck. We then remove all parts and clean and dry everything so that we can determine the overall condition of the light and fixture. Once we find the cause of the problem, we’ll perform the pool light repair. Next we reassemble the fixture and place it back into the light niche. To finish, we test the light for proper operation to ensure the job was completed successfully. We always make sure that pool owners get the right lighting product for their swimming pool or spa.
Pool and spa lights all vary in price, depending on the type (incandescent, fluorescent, halogen or LED) and cord length of the pool light. LED lighting can reduce the need for a pool light repair. The high energy efficiency and cool running temperature prevents overheating in the fixture. Both white and color LED pool lights are energy efficient, cost-effective and beautiful. Upgrading to LED lights gives your San Diego pool and spa the option for different light colors and creates a highly enjoyable swimming experience.
