How far below the surface should underwater lights be placed?

The depth of light used underwater will be determined by the purity of the surrounding water and the brightness you prefer. Place the light about 3-5 feet below the surface to begin, then adjust from there. In crystal clear waters, some lights may be placed on the bottom of 10-15 feet of water and still produce a large diameter of light. On the other hand, in exceptionally polluted water, the light may only need to be set 2-3 feet below the surface.

Do underwater lights require regular cleaning?

The amount of cleaning that lights underwater require is dependent on the environment in which they are used. The user will only need to monitor the lights for growth on a seasonal basis in cold seawater and most freshwater conditions. Warm seawater conditions will necessitate checking the light every 3-4 weeks until the frequency of cleaning can be determined. Allowing considerable growth on the outside of the light will prevent the inside LED chips from receiving adequate cooling from the surrounding water.

Can underwater lights be used in a strong current?

Led lights underwater are small, delicate electronics that can easily be damaged if they are allowed to overheat or are exposed to high voltages or currents. An external electrical circuit known as a “driver” is required to control the power provided to these devices safely. Hence, it is suggested to supply only the required current to the underwater lights.

What are the colors available in underwater lights?

  • The most common color is NW (neutral white), which has a 4000K value. In nature, this color corresponds to the early morning and late afternoon. The most common of all hues. This temperature is balanced, and it has no impact on us.
  • Warm white (WW) has a color temperature of 2700-3000K. The color spectrum is similar to that of a typical light bulb. The nature of this temperature encourages us to sleep. But, on the other hand, it induces a mood of calm in us.
  • The color 5000 kelvin is a lovely white with a subtle yellow hue. However, the majority of people who chose this color are looking for a more natural white light that is less harsh on the eyes.
  • Single colors and RGB and RGBW color-shifting options are available in lightly used underwater.
