If you want to turn your backyard into a colorful, peaceful oasis, what is the easiest way? Create a sincere, inviting ambiance by revamping your pool and patio lighting. Enjoy breath taking light shows, or a soft glowing setting.

One of the best ways for in-ground pool owners to amp up the ambiance is with the Hayward ColorLogic LED Pool Light. High intensity bulb displays 7 light shows and 5 fixed colors. The five fixed colors can then be customized to create more than 101 unique colors!

Hayward ColorLogic lights are easy to install, just cut the cord behind the old light, tape the two ends together, and pull the new cord into the conduit and up to the pool light junction box. Trim the excess cord and make your wire nut connections.

ColorLogic Light shows range from “Twilight,” that’s perfect for an evening swim to match the colors in the sky, to “Tranquility,” which includes a display of calming whites and blues. The bulbs used in the Color Logic has a lifetime of 50,000 hours – that’s a lot of perfect evenings you can create.

The video above has some great examples of the kind of atmosphere you can create with LED pool lights. Because the bulb is LED, that means you will save a lot of money off your energy bills! Cooler and Cheaper! To see how much money you could save with a Color Logic LED pool light, visit the Hayward Energy Calculator.

If you are an above-ground pool owner and want to create some floating-led-pool-lilghtbeautiful lighting in your pool, try the Floating LED Pool Light for a tranquil look!
