Add Outdoor Lighting to your Yard to Enhance Pool Safety

An inground pool is one of the most exciting investments you can make. If done right, it adds beauty to your backyard, makes parties and gatherings more fun and, crucially, allows you to cool off on the hottest of days. But pools also come with some danger, especially at night when it gets dark enough to have trouble seeing where the pool begins and ends. But the proper outdoor lighting will help eliminate those safety issues. Here’s how:

Landscape Lighting

If you have a new inground pool, chances are you’re also likely to invest in some fencing around it and some landscaping just inside the fence. That landscaping is the perfect area to put some outdoor lighting. This will of course light up your backyard at night, making it less likely anyone falls into the pool.

This is especially important for babies and toddlers as accidental drowning is the second-leading cause of death for the ages of one to four. But it’s also worth it to protect any pets who may fall in if left in the dark. Plus, it’s perfect for those who just want to hang out in the vicinity of the pool at night without swimming.

In-Pool Lighting

Of course, there are some nights where you’re going to want to go for a late dip, especially when you have company over. Underwater LED lights can ensure this is also as safe as possible by lighting up the interior of your pool at night. These lights tend to be designed to not shine too bright, but to give off a cool glow that will allow you see comfortably without blinding you.
