The idea is to change the swimming pool lights underwater during the off season when there is no water in the pool. Since pool lights add to the atmosphere of the landscape of your pool, you probably do not want to wait to fix them if they leave during the summer season. It is possible to change the lights of the pool underwater while the pool is full. And with newer, energy-efficient lighting available, you may not want to wait to start saving money on electric bills either. Pool lights provide an environment for swimming at night, but they also serve as security measures against darkness. A pool light on the floor that has burned out should be replaced. Just be sure to cut the power to the pool before you start.
With so many types of bulbs and gaskets available, take your old light and board it to a pool supply store to get the right replacements. Open the fuse box of the pool and fire the circuit breaker that controls the electrical power to the led swimming pool lights inground. Typically, the fuse box is found in the puff at one end of the pool, although in some cases the circuit breaker can be found in the house’s fuse box. Remove the screws around the edge of the glass plate covering the light, using the Phillips screwdriver to turn the screws counterclockwise. Insert the tip of a flat-blade screwdriver into the joint between one edge of the glass plate and the compartment containing the bulb socket. Raise the tip to lift the glass plate.

Grip the edges of the glass plate and pull it from the top of the compartment. Pull the transparent protective cover from the top of the bulb. Grasp an edge of the rubber gasket around the bulb socket and pull the gasket out of the compartment. Unscrew the bulb and dispose of it properly. Screw the spare swimming pool light bulb into the socket. Place the rubber gasket back into the compartment around the bulb. Place the transparent protective cover back on the bulb and put the glass plate back on top of the compartment. Replace the screws and restore the electrical power. If your existing joint seems to be worn out, replace it together with the bulb in a pool tent. Do not enter the water to start this project until you are absolutely sure that the electricity is turned off. Otherwise, it could be fatal.
