If you’re a fan of ambient lighting, Floating Lights are the newest and the trendiest options you can go with for lighting up your backyard pool. Available in floral, polygonal, disco ball, balloon, and animal shapes, these floating lights seamlessly blend with small to medium sized pools, and look stunningly pleasant to the eye. The best part is that you can even customize the tone of these floating lights, keeping them translucent or opaque according to what suits your setting the most.

The Pool and Spa Warehouse have a wide range of floating lights available for you to choose from.


String lights add a certain amount of magic to your pool setting! Contrary to the belief that they aren’t the safest lights to go with, overhead string lighting, if installed properly, add an oomph and depth to your oasis. In addition to that, string lights have weatherproof sockets and heavy-gauge wire that provide them with prolonged life spans and permanence. Whether you hang them over your pools or use them to decorate your patios, commercial-grade string lights are fascinating solutions for beautifying your surroundings.

If you are thinking of choosing overhead string lighting for your outdoor space The Lighting Outlet can help you decide which model to chose.


LEDs are the safest and the most popular medium to light up your backyard pool. Luminous, colourful and durable, the LED lights are energy efficient sources of light that will save you 80% of the energy other lights would use, while offering a considerable degree of safety and utility after the sun sets down. In addition to that, they are heat-resistant and do not contain filaments, unlike incandescent bulbs that burn out over time. LED lights not only illuminate the waters but also work well around the backyard or the submerged seating ledges within your luxury pool.

Laminar lighting helps you make the most of your pool after the sun sets and you’re in a mood for a swim. Laminar lights are brilliant water features that train LED lights onto the currents of water spurting into your swimming pool, creating a vigorously colourful imagery amidst the dark! The stunning visual effects are complemented by the soothing sound and dynamic flow of water, lending an exceptional pool experience. Laminar Jets can be installed in both existing and new pools, and their arc height and distance can easily be adjusted with the innovative adjustment valves attached to these jets.
