Step By Step Instructions
- Isolate the pool lights by turning the power off, then check the transformer. The existing transformer must be 12V to 32 AC only, have a minimum of 15 watt per light, and be in good working order.
- Next, remove the existing light fixture from the wall of your pool. Disconnect the cable from the pool light with pliers ensuring you leave as much cable as possible. Once that’s done, remove the bracket from the wall.
- Select the correct retro bracket from the two that come with the new light.
- Feed the pool light cable through the proper location on the retro bracket. Once that’s done, affix the bracket to the existing mount locations using the screw kit provided.
- Connect the cable to the light by removing the terminal cover. Using a #2 Philips Head screwdriver, remove the 3 fixing screws and the cover to reveal the terminal connection.
- Prepare the cable by stripping it back to specified length. Select an appropriate gland by testing each one on the existing cable. The fitment should be firm without bulging or deforming.
- Attach the cable to the light by attaching wires to the terminals at the rear of the light. You can do this using a flat blade screwdriver. Make sure that the gland is properly seated and not twisted. Then, replace the terminal cover firmly by hand only.
- Remove 2 x filler screws and o’ring seal, inject lanolin into left filler hole until visible in right filler hole.
- Replace the o’ring seals and screws and be sure not to over tighten.
- Coil any excess cable behind the pool light and attach the light to the bracket by inserting tab at base of light into bracket and inserting M4 x 12P screw – tighten gently by hand.
- Once that’s done, turn power on test the light.
