Swimming Pool Lighting Tips

Swimming is really a very popular activity and it is a sport that not only athletes but also many people do. The comfortable pool environment, the light environment of the pool, the ventilation environment and the quality of the water are very important. If one of them is missing or not in the desired performance, it will be a problem for everyone who comes to those facilities. In terms of lighting, it should not be too dark and should not be glare. Improper lighting will make you much more tired.

In order for people who do this sport professionally to work more quietly and concentratedly in the evening, the lighting should be bright and working properly at the required level. The swimming pool is a more private environment compared to many indoor lighting environments.

-The surrounding of the swimming pool is more humid than other indoor areas. Therefore, the lighting devices used here must have a good waterproof performance.

-Water has the functions of refracting and reflecting light. Together with the light-emitting feature of the lamps themselves, it can cause intense glare in swimmers. Therefore, the lamps here must be chosen very carefully.

-Water quality management of swimming pools requires daily disinfection of the pool water. Most swimming pool disinfectants are primarily disinfectants containing chlorine. When the disinfectant is placed in water, a chemical reaction occurs that produces traces of CL2 (chlorine) to evaporate into the air. Therefore, lamps applied in the swimming hall must have a certain anti-corrosion property.


-The architectural outline and internal structure of the swimming pool can also affect the choice of lamps. For example, some swimming pools do not have strong load-bearing walls around them, so lamps can only be mounted on the ceiling. Considering the safety of swimmers under the lamps, a lighter weight lamp should be selected and safety ropes should be provided to prevent accidental falling. In addition, glass materials should be avoided in lamps in order to prevent the broken glass from falling on the swimmers and possible injury.

-Glare can irritate the eyes and even make swimmers feel dizzy. This situation is very unfavorable for swimming. It is practical to use a reflector to control glare. In addition, precautions such as choosing the appropriate lens and adjusting the rotatable brackets should be taken. It can be used to focus the lighting on the main area of ​​the swimming pool. Arranging the lamps in this way prevents the view and light from being in the same direction, greatly reducing glare.

-The air in the swimming pool contains very small amounts of chlorine, which can corrode some metal components. Therefore, the anti-corrosion performance of the lamps should be considered. An LED projector with a cast aluminum body material is more chlorine resistant than other metal components. Thus, it ensures the durability of the lighting equipment in the swimming pool.
