3 Reasons To Include Lights In Your New Pool

If you are thinking of installing a pool in your yard, you are looking into pool accessories and considering if they are worth it. Not all additions are particularly useful, but pool lights are essential. This is for three reasons.

Safety And Security

The biggest reason to have lights installed in your pool is that you want to protect your family and guests. When evening approaches and the natural light fades over your backyard, small obstructions in the ground become more hazardous. Changes in texture in the ground, as in the transition from your pool surround to your lawn, become a tripping risk as unwary feet shuffle over it. There’s the risk that a guest wandering outside to look at the stars misses the edge of the pool and falls in.

On the related note of home security, the lights from pool lights warn potential home intruders that people are home and that it’s safer to move on to a more vacant-looking house.


After a section on safety and security, this may sound a little trivial, but the general feel of your pool is important. A soft glow over twinkling water encourages your guests and family to hang out around your pool and try it out. It completes the look of your yard with its sophisticated and elegant look, and it makes your parties memorable. Your pool will be the envy of all your neighbors when they see the pool expertly highlighted with interior illumination, and that can only make everyone happier.

Makes Night Swimming Attractive

We have busy lives, and, being diurnal, much of it takes place during daylight hours. We mostly work, eat, and socialize during the day. The drawback to this is that it doesn’t leave much time for those pool laps that you promised yourself you would do. A pool, after all, isn’t really for looking at. Its beauty is a side benefit; the exercise you get from swimming and the lubrication of social events are the real benefits a pool provides, and you get more of these two effects if you can use the pool at night. Putting lights in the pool makes it both safer and more attractive to go for a night dip.

Getting lights in your pool takes an expert, and Alan Jackson Pools has the experts you are looking for. If you want more information about installing a pool in your yard, contact us.
