How many Lights and Where

Hi, thank you to all fo the wondeful people who read this forum - it has given me much information in planning and designing my new pool!

I need your help :) I am trying to decide how many lights I need and where I should put them. The pool is on a different level than the house - below it - so I am not sure if the light will shine into the house or not.

Thank you for any advice or suggestions you may have!

RE: How many Lights and Where

I'm guessing that your house is on the bottom of the diagram, and I am no expert, but I would put a light to the left of the entry stairs (between the stairs and the shallow shelves) facing the direction of about 1 or 2 o'clock - or towards just right of the cuddle cove, and then one on the right side of the deep end so that it faces 9 o'clock - straight across the pool.
I think that would give you good light and a little privacy in the cuddle cove at night - indirect light only.
It is correct that you do not want any lights facing the house - when we moved the position of our spa I did not give that a thought and I really don't like it. Wish the spa light was on a different switch than the other pool lights, but it was going to be a lot more wiring and I didn't like the electrician anyway.
