LED spotlights: they are low consumption and can be installed in in-ground or removable pools without major difficulty. There are single-color and multi-color LED spotlights.

Floating LED Lamps: They are portable and battery-operated, they float on water. It is the most comfortable option if you do not want to do an installation.

Where are the pool lights located?

Floating lamps, meanwhile, do not need any type of installation. Then there are also the bulbs that are connected to the return valve.
