If a splash of colour is needed, Waterco’s Britestream

Multicoloured LED lights can produce a

multitude of different colours without the

need for coloured lenses

Britestream LED lights offer a long life span of over 70,000 hours, can be retrofitted thanks to a universal adaptor, options also include a stainless steel rim (Niche light) and various cable lengths. The company’s halogen Litestream Underwater Lights use a 100 watt globe which lights up the entire pool via a specially designed lens that refracts the light without any discernible loss of brightness. Coloured lenses are also available for the Litestream.


The one guaranteed way of reducing running costs on a pool at the same time as enhancing its ambience is by the installation of LED lighting.

The Certikin LED light offers staggering lamp life of up to 100,000 hours, that’s about 11 years if left on permanently! They also use less than 10% of the energy used by traditional 300W pool lights. The Certikin LT LED Underwater Light is environmentally friendly thanks to its long life expectancy and energy efficiency. It’s available in either a white light or a multi- coloured light unit where a choice of fixed colour or automatic colour sequencing (six fixed colours and six colour sequences) can be used to create a range of different effects. Available either as a complete PU6 or PU9 Certikin underwater light is ideal for retro fit into any PAR56 type lamp unit, the Certikin LED light is an ideal upgrade for any pool. Colour sequencing or multi-colour LED lamps can be controlled either by push button or for ease of operation on the poolside, a wireless remote control unit.

EVA OPTIC – LEADINGINNOVATION EVA Optic is a Dutch developer and manufacturer of high quality LED underwater lighting and industrial LED lighting for use in swimming pools, sports facilities and public buildings.

The company was one of the first manufacturers successfully to use powerful chip LEDs in underwater lighting, enabling them to achieve high luminosity in their underwater lights and by closely monitoring the latest developments in LED technology, their fixtures always contain the latest LEDs.

EVA Optic is the world’s only manufacturer of underwater lighting to have completely separated all electronics from the lamp. This means that the driver and power supply can be installed in a central technical area (the underwater lights are less susceptible to malfunctions).

Electronics typically have a limited lifespan. A lamp with electronics underwater is therefore much more vulnerable than a

lamp with all electronics in a dry, easily accessible area. With the right combination of materials, a well thought out product design and clever use of water for cooling the LEDs, the company have managed to produce very powerful underwater lights with optimal cooling for maximum durability. Last year, EVA Optic introduced the first RGBW LED underwater light with sufficient light output to replace a 400W halogen underwater light without having to compromise on light output. EVA Optic’s unique Intelligent Power Control (IPC) ensures that the EVA Optic A4 RGBW LED underwater lamp always has 100% light output.

The IPC system makes the new EVA Optic A4 RGBW the most energy efficient multicolour underwater light available. It is as powerful as a 400W halogen light while consuming only 50W per light. EVA Optic uses DMX for controlling the multicolour lights. This universal system is used in professional lighting technology and home automation.

Pooling Light Solutions Inside And Out CASE STUDY

The Light Projects group has worked with lighting designer Kate Beard on a stunning lighting scheme for a new residential swimming pool complex in Wimbledon using fibre optics from Danish manufacturer Roblon.

Fibre optics have been installed in the ceiling as well as in the swimming pool itself to complement the different areas and create a sense of uniformity and continuity across the whole scheme designed by interior designer Charlotte Crosland. Two IP-rated, 150-watt fibre optic light generators, located outside the building, are used to feed the 40no. fittings from Roblon’s Avant-Garde Collection which are housed in the pool ceiling. These discreet but powerful fittings provide a wall wash across the feature stonework and interact with the wall’s stippled surface by highlighting shadows and irregularities. This creates a perfect contrast to the symmetry of the pool area and the rectangular design

of its space and windows. The pool itself is cleverly illuminated using three projectors, each of which serves a different function. 2no. 250W light generators are used in an alternating pattern for the main body of the pool and are attached to Aquarius 70 fittings via 8mm fibre. Another, 150W generator illuminates the pool steps using smaller 6mm fibre and Aquarius 35 fittings. In the main body of the pool, the fittings alternate between focussed and wide so that different effects can be achieved by having one or both projectors in operation. This combination provides either a subtle decorative low-level illumination or a more concentrated effect as required. This scheme illustrates perfectly the versatility and adaptability of fibre optics over traditional light sources in wet area installations. Fibre optics are low maintenance with the advantage of having the light source remote from the fittings.
