LED lights offer a number of significant advantages over incandescent, fluorescent, and compact florescent lights.
The biggest advantage that LED lights have is that they use far less power as compared to other forms of pool lighting.
This represents significant savings in terms of energy consumption. In addition, LED lights last far longer than other types of light bulbs.
They do not contain any mercury and thus offer a sizable advantage over compact fluorescent light bulbs, also they are not susceptible to burning out when left on for longer periods of time.
Their characteristics make LED lights particularly suitable for outdoor use, and especially in modern swimming pools.
