27 October, 2020

With the onset of winter, we begin to miss the long summer afternoons in the pool; see how the sun goes down and end the day with a sunset. Do you want to take advantage of the nights to cool off in the pool? This can not only be enjoyed during the day. With good lighting you can use it at night, and it can be a very fun leisure alternative.

It is important to consider the size of the pool to illuminate it properly. Experts recommend installing one spotlight for every 20m2 of water surface in our pool.

If you opt for LED lighting, in addition to achieving the environment you are looking for, you will be saving on light consumption. Depending on the LED light you use and their intensity you can achieve different results. There is a wide variety of LED lighting that you can use to illuminate the area, LED strips, projectors, flat projectors, submersible projectors, recessed, etc. … You can either choose to use lighting with warmer colours or other colder or neutral ones, all of them will contribute different sensations to bathers. Choosing the right colour will help to build the environment we want while also affecting our mood: the tranquillity in the blue tones, the white will add more elegance and the red will give us a touch of passion.

By illuminating the outside of the pool, you can increase the visual impact. No matter how well illuminated the interior of the pool is, it is important to remember that if the exterior does not look inviting, we will not create the desired effect. For this you can use suitable LED projectors and distribute them in such a way that they create the environment we want to achieve.

To distribute the light correctly and not leave any area in darkness or with low visibility, it is important to distribute the spotlights throughout the pool. In this way you will be able to increase the lighting of the entire area while you make the interior of your pool dazzle your guests. We can achieve very special lighting effects if we know how to play with the location of the lights and the lighting of our pool.

You should also take into consideration when lighting your pool that excess intensity can break the environment you want to create. It is recommended, as far as possible, to maintain a low intensity in the lighting of the pool, if the surrounding light is good there would be no problem in leaving a dimmer light for the interior.
