How does solar pool lighting work?
Solar pool lighting works via solar energy. Photovoltaic cells capture sunlight underwater and convert this into electricity. This electricity is stored in a high quality lithium-ion battery. When it gets dark, the light switches on automatically via a built-in light sensor.
The lamps provide one hour of light per hour that they have charged in the sun. On average, the lamp provides an illuminated swimming pool with 320 lumens for seven hours.
Because the lamps work on solar energy, no electricity is consumed from the grid, which means that from now on your swimming pool lighting is always free. The lights turn on every night and you don’t have to worry about forgetting to turn the lights off. The lamps work with a voltage of less than 4 volts, so that no dangerous situations can arise.
One lamp can illuminate an area of approximately 15 to 20 meters. They are suitable for both chlorinated and salt water and are robot-proof. The lamps can be installed on almost any type of surface.
Why solar pool lighting?
You do not have to partially deflate the pool to install the lights. The lamp can be placed in less than a minute.
The lamps only use clean and free sunlight, so they have no costs.
No risk of leakage
No cabling is required, which means that the lamp cannot cause leakages.
