Okay, this last PB mentions Savi Melody lights. They fit in 1.5 in pipe with a return fitting, no niche. Anyone have experience with them? Do you need more of them compared to Intellibrites to achieve similar lighting?
Yes, we had two installed in our new 38' x 16' fiberglass freeform last year. They're perfect, and fill the pool really well. PB likes them as they (as you stated) fit neatly in a standard 1.5" opening... less worries (from us both) for leakage!
We can control them from our Jandy PDA, but usually just allow them to slow-cycle through the colors. We sometimes turn the pool on at night even if we're just sitting next to it... so nice to watch.
Here's a couple examples of two of those LEDs in a 38' x 16' pool (excuse the window screen...):
They look nice! How long have you had them? No problems?
This is year #2. No problems so far!
