Stair Rails & LED lights

SemmasJuly 23, 2011

Hi - I have two questions i'm hoping someone can help me with.

1) I had an inground pool put in 15 yrs. ago but never put stair rails in. Now that my husband and I are a little bit older, we'd like to have one put it but don't even know if it's possible since it wasn't put it when the cement was poured around the pool. Does anyone know if it's possible to know have stair rails put in?

2) I have lights inside my pool that change color but they are very dim and you they barely even light up the pool at night. Is it possible to swap these out for LED lights, and if so, would the LED lights light up the pool more?

1) Yes, you can retrofit handrails.
2) possibly, we would need a picture of the lights.,

Word of caution when adding rails and ladders. They should use non conductive, plastic coated rails, ladders, and sockets. This is due to them not needing to be bonded.

Any idea what brand of lights you currently have?

I suspect that the pool was build with a inadequate number of fixtures. If, for example, SAM/SAL(Pentair's older style of pool and spa bulb driven coloreds) were used, IntelliBrites would offer some improvement but depending on the pool, may not be as much of an improvement as desired.

How many fixtures do you have? How big is the pool?
