Due to different user habits in different regions, there are many types of swimming pool lights. In North America and some other regions, nicheless lights and niches are two common ways of classifying swimming pool lights. So, what is the difference between nicheless and niche? What are their respective advantages and disadvantages? How to choose the right lighting for your swimming pool? This article will answer these questions in detail.
A niche is the housing of a swimming pool light, an important component of a recessed swimming pool light. Niches are usually embedded in the walls or floors of swimming pools during installation, which helps to seamlessly integrate the swimming pool light into the overall design. The swimming pool light niche is very important for ensuring the normal operation, safety, and aesthetics of underwater lighting.
Construction personnel must install or maintain dry-niche swimming pool lights in a water-free environment. Once installed in the niche, the swimming pool light forms a seal with the niche to prevent water from entering.
Wet-niches allow water to enter the interior of the niche, helping to dissipate heat from the lamp body and ensure as long a lifespan as possible. You can install or maintain wet niche swimming pool lights underwater or in damp areas.
Nicheless swimming pool lights do not require a designated niche to be installed on the side walls of the pool, making it easy to install and replace the lamp body.
You can make your choice after considering factors such as the type, size and installation location of the pool.
By saving on niches, you can lay more lights for your pool within the same budget. In this way, you can achieve brighter and more uniform lighting effects. For a small family swimming pool, nicheless pool lights are a good choice.
The parameters of the niche lights, with a wide choice of shapes, they can meet the lighting needs of almost all pools. In addition, niche lights can also prevent damage or injury caused by impact or stepping. In public or commercial swimming pool lighting systems, niche lights are more common.
You can also choose according to your preferences. If you can’t decide, ask the manufacturer or retailer for help.
