Pool light lens covers are made of a sturdy composite that will withstand heat as well as being constantly submerged underwater.  The lens is specifically designed to fit snug to an existing light bulb housing but be sure they are compatible with your existing lighting.  

It’s important to determine the manufacturer and appropriate size of light to ensure proper fit.  Most pool light bulbs are approximately 8 inches in diameter and spa light bulbs are approximately 4 inches in diameter.

Pool light covers are available in single colors or in multi color kits.  The most common color is blue or red but packages including up to six colors will offer a color for every occasion.  A soothing blue or green light will create a relaxing atmosphere for quiet nights alone with your significant other.  Red or purple lens covers are ideal for a livelier atmosphere during a party or family get together.

If you want to change the color for a special occasion, lens covers can be easily removed by simply snapping them off.  It’s an easy way to change the entire look of your pool in a matter of minutes.  It’s important to remember that different colors will emit different levels of brightness. White light will shine the brightest and blue light will be substantially dimmer.  This effect can be used if you want to create a more mellow and relaxing environment.
