These disco type lights are inexpensive and display a variety of colors or flashing, disco type lighting.
The lighting coverage ranges from 10 - 20 feet. So if you want your whole pool lit up you will need to buy several lights. One of them just won't give enough light or give the affect of several lights.
This light by SwimLine measures 5.5" diam. x 2.5" and uses solar cell rechargeable batteries which provides about 6-8 hours of light when fully charged. Six LED lights provide a multicolored display that gives up to 10' of light.
To get the full effect of the underwater light show, your pool lights need to be turned off.
We bought one for our pool, but found that because our pool has a dark blue lining with a design, that it didn't give the affect seen in the picture. The lining was just too dark and the multi-colored light show competed with the pool lining pattern.
However, when we tried it in our neighbor's pool who has a light colored gunite pool - plain with no patterns - this light was fantastic. This light can be used in a hot tub as well or hung from your patio umbrella. Go to Amazon to check it out:Solar Underwater Light Show for Swimming pools (DISCO Pool Light Float Color Changing)
The light sticks to the side of the pool. Place the lighted piece just below the water. It keeps in place through the use of strong magnets. Match up the power piece on the outside, which is fused for safety and
plugs into an A/C outlet.
