Pond Light Buyer’s Guide

Colours

Most LED pond lights come with a range of coloured bulbs. These can be mixed to create a great range of colours. The colour can be changed on most mains operated light using the remote control provided.

Ease of installation

Most pond lights come with suction cups that allow you to stick them to the sides or base of your pond and pool. These suckers stick really well to firm surfaces such as tiles or concrete but can come unstuck from PVC pond liners. If this happens you can weigh down the lights with rocks. Alternatively, for a more permanent solution, you can stick the lights to some rocks using waterproof silicone and allowing the silicone to dry before immersing the lights in your pond.

Mains operated light will need to be plugged into an outdoor socket.

Waterproofing

For lights to be fully submersible they need to meet the standard IP68. They will also need to be plugged into a waterproof outdoor socket.

Power source

If you want a permanent display in your garden, then the best pond light for you will be mains operated. These will need to be plugged into a suitable outdoor socket. If you do not have power in your garden, you can use battery-operated lights. These are great to add a fuss-free feature in your garden and are ideal for more occasional use.

Conclusion

Pond lights are a great way to make a feature of your garden pond, pool or hot tub after dark. They come in a great range of colours and with a range of effects from static to strobe.

I would recommend the LemonBest® Remote Control RGB LED Pond Spotlights as they are waterproof to IP68 making them completely submersible and they also create a great range of colours and effects.
