Are Jandy Underwater Lights Safe?
In 2006, a PB installed a pool with a Jandy Power Center RS controller and various Jandy products in my back yard. Two years ago, I had to replace the bulb and gasket of the underwater light, because of water intrusion. Just yesterday, I tried to switch on the pool lights and noticed that neither spa nor pool lights lit up. Today I found the reason: The underwater light in the pool broke again due to water leakage and the GFI responded (thankfully) disconnecting all pool lights. Now I am wondering how safe I would be in the pool if the GFI breaker was of equally dubious quality as the pool light. As an electrical engineer I am willing to pull the light complete with gasket and wires and hand it to my colleagues at UL for close examination. Is this a frequent occurence with underwater lights?
