|West Hills Pool Light Repair Tips
Pool lighting fixtures require submersion in water to work correctly. The water itself cools the fixture that would otherwise overheat and shatter the lens. Some newer lights, however, are being manufactured with overheating fuses to mitigate this problem. Each canister has a rubber gasket that seals it from the water's incursion and is placed between the lens and the can, behind which is the receptacle and bulb. Whether you live in Valley Village, Tarzana, or West Hills, pool light repair typically requires disassembly of the fixture in order to determine if the bulb needs replacement. Burn liife expectancy is approximately 1000 hours, and sometimes longer before burning out. This is a relatively long time for a residential application, but for commercial or public pools, this may only last 6 months! LED is now being purchased for these situations as they can last 10 times longer - up to 20,000 hours. For these, and all your service or repair needs, you can rely on our team of repair technicians to be ready and available to help - make an appointment today, and we'll get your water back on line asap.
