Lighting a baja bench or tanning ledge

Posted by tlvancouver (My Page) on

We've just revised our plans and now have a large (8 by 20) tanning ledge and I'm curious how you light it? We have intellibrite LEDs going in the pool and spa.

I'm concerned about the ledge looking a different colour in the day and looking weird - anyone do a darker pebbletec on the ledge?

At night I'm not sure how others light their decks - it's not deep enough for an LED...

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

How deep will the water be? Savi lights go into a return fitting so that is a possibility. Lighted bubblers could be used as well.

My ledge is 9" of water and it's not deep enough for lighting. Had this talk with my PB today. But my ledge is a different color anyway because it will all be glass tile. he told me most people just light from above so we will do some lighting around the tanning ledge.

Pentair just came out with a small LED light called GLOBright. It is an LED light to complement their Intellibrite lights. It is meant for shallow water applications with a low voltage transformer.

Pools94 nailed it....a great option for shallow water lighting that meets code and provides ample light. There are LV white options if color is not your thing.

Ironically my Pentair rep just walked in and dropped off new LED bubblers that can be ran with or without intellibrites and will sync with them.

I've been howling for those for a long time. I wonder if they got the landscape light varieties too.

Natural_one, do you know what they're called or have an approximate cost? The globrites are interesting - we're looking at between 6-9 inches so not sure if they'd work?

Friends of ours have a led strip lining the border of their tanning ledge which looks pretty slick in photos, not sure how it would look in person - have any of you seen that?

Scott- I thought I saw landscape lights 2 years ago at the show, no? Never carried them or installed them. I cant imagine colored landscpae lighting looking decent with the exception to Disneyland, haha.

tlvancouver- they are called a "colorcascade led light bubbler". Varying nozzle sizes and flow rates dependent on desired height and water depth.

The choice of land scape lighting is extremely limited.

If you are still looking at bids, and want a better finished product then the company you are looking at, give Natural one a shout.
