There are so many details that go into making your Austin swimming pool amazing, and some are often overlooked. That includes lighting, which can make a huge difference to the look and feel of your pool. Plus, lighting can also serve as a safety feature in and around the pool area.

Whether you’re revamping an existing pool at home or are ready to install a new one, here are a few lighting ideas to keep in mind.

LED Lights

Among the more popular lighting ideas for swimming pools are LED lights. These light options are popular because they are energy-efficient, last a long time, come in many different colors, and are very easy to maintain. While they are more expensive to install from the get-go, they end up being cheaper over time because of the lower amount of energy and maintenance required.

Solar Lights

Another energy-efficient option for pool lights is solar lighting. These lights rely solely on the power generated from the sun, so there’s no cost associated with their operation. Having said that, solar lights are not as bright as other options, nor are they as reliable for providing bright light at night. 

Fiber Optic Lights

Fiber optic lighting is a more expensive option for pool lights. But they can be less expensive over the long run as they don’t cost as much in maintenance and operation as other light options, such as incandescent lighting. Plus, fiber optic lights come in a variety of color options to choose from.

Incandescent Lights

Incandescent lights are the more traditional lighting options for pools and are more affordable than other lighting types. However, they can be more expensive over the long run because they aren’t as energy efficient as LED or fiber optic lights, so you’ll be spending more on energy bills as time passes.
