  • Lighting Comparison: LED versus HID Lights
    What are the Major Deficiencies in HID Lights: Amongst the deficiencies in HID lighting are the following: A portion (roughly 30%) of the energy emitted by HID lights is infrared (which in terms of lighting output means it’s entirely wasted energy). Although this figure is worse for older variants of the technology and better for new HID bulbs, it’s a relevant inefficiency in...

  • How To Seal Pool Light Cable?
    If you have a swimming pool, installing pool lights is a popular choice to enhance its beauty and illuminate it during the night. However, since pool lights operate in water, sealing the pool light cables properly is crucial to prevent any potential hazards like short circuits or electrical shocks. So, what should you do to seal the cable?

    Before You Seal, Prepare the Necessary Tools and Materials

    To ensure a smooth process, make sure to gather all the required tools and materials. Here's a list to prevent any omissions:

    Screwdriver: To open the housing of the pool light and disconnect the cable connection.
    Utility knife or wire cutter: To cut the cable.
    Soldering iron: For soldering the wires.
    New cable ties: To secure the cables together.
    Waterproof connector or cable gland: To create a secure and waterproof connection at the entry point.
    Waterproof sealant: Applied to the cable entry point and any exposed cable connections to further prevent water intrusion.
    Caulking gun: To apply the sealant.
    Multimeter: To check for electrical leakage.

    After gathering the necessary tools and materials, the next step is to clean the cable channel, cable entry, and exit. Cleaning these areas before the sealing work reduces unnecessary difficulties.

    Let's Begin the Sealing Process
    The First Thing You Do Is to Turn Off the Power to the Pool

    Locate the power distribution box in your home, find the switch that controls the power to the pool, and switch it off. After turning it off, verify that the power to the pool is indeed off by attempting to turn on the pool light. If the light doesn't turn on, it means you have successfully turned off the power to the pool. If the light turns on, you need to be cautious. Once you identify the issue, fix it and confirm again. Then, you can proceed to the next step.

    If the circuit identification in the distribution box is unclear, you cannot determine which one supplies power to the pool. In that case, the safest way is to turn off the main power, confirm it is off, and then proceed with the other work.

    Step 1: Open the Housing of the Pool Light Cable

    Use a screwdriver to open the housing of your pool light and remove the inner body of the light to expose the pool light cable. You can use a flathead screwdriver to loosen the housing of the pool light with a little force. If you are doing this for the first time, you may need to give it a few tries. After a few attempts, you will find that it's easy. Once you have unscrewed it, separate the light from the pool light cable.

    Step 2: Disconnect the Cable Connection

    Now, you need to remove the pool light cable from the other end. Use a screwdriver to carefully disconnect it. Then, pull the pool light cable out of the conduit.

    Step 3: Cut the Cable

    Use a utility knife or wire cutter to cut the cable. Be sure to cut the insulation sheath, not the internal wires. Focus on cutting and avoid cutting the wires inside.

    Step 4: Separate the Cable Ties

    If there are multiple wires tied together with cable ties, you need to separate them. Separating the cable ties will help you easily identify and connect each wire to the power or pool light during the sealing work.

    Step 5: Solder the Wires

    Soldering the wires should be done in this step. Bring each wire to its corresponding connector. Soldering the wires provides a good electrical connection, ensuring smooth operation of the pool lights.

    Step 6: Put It Back Together

    After soldering the wires, use a new cable tie to secure the cables. It should not be too loose or too tight. Being too loose can cause water ingress, while being too tight can put strain on the wires.

    Step 7: Create a Waterproof Connection

    When connecting the cable, use a waterproof connector or cable gland to create a secure and waterproof connection at the entry point. Also, apply waterproof sealant at the cable entry point and any exposed cable connections to further prevent water intrusion.

    Step 8: Reinstall

    Now, it's time for the final step. Place the pool light cable back into the conduit. Use the caulking gun to fill the sealant and wait a moment to see if it is secure. If the housing of the pool light is not loose in the pool light cable, you can install it.

    Don't forget to check for electrical leakage with a multimeter.
    Everything is now in order. Turn on the power to your pool and enjoy your swimming experience.
