Having a swimming pool is a great advantage during the summer months. Relaxing after a long, hot day in the sun and unwinding in your pool is a fantastic way to end your day. However, when the sun goes down, if you don’t have proper lighting, using your pool can be a risky endeavor.
Pools are a permanent fixture of your property, and you want to be able to get the most use of it. Adding lighting to your pool can help you extend the swimming hours and improve overall safety. Here’s a look at just a few more of the great benefits of installing new pool lighting at your home.
In the summer, once the sun has set, temperatures can still be above 80 degrees, making night swims a great way to cool down in the sweltering heat. Without proper lighting, though, swimming at night is simply not safe. Pool lighting can help to illuminate the water, the area surrounding the pool and even the walkway from your door to the pool deck.
Having pool lighting can provide you with improved security at your home, as well. A complete lighting system will do more than just highlight the water in your pool. With lighting installed that also brightens up the yard, you can look out your window and keep an eye on your property easily. This can help you identify if that moving shadow you saw was a would-be burglar, a stray cat or dog or just a figment of your imagination without needing a flashlight or having to going outside to inspect the situation.
Proper lighting can also make your pool look great. Pool lighting can be customized with different angles, effects and even colors to create a unique look and feel that matches your style. Your pool is a set fixture and difficult to change, but with an addition of lighting or by changing up your existing illumination, you can see your pool in a whole new light – literally!
