I have a 12 volt pentaire pool light system in need of a new light fixture.  I also have a new pentaire 115 volt fixture.  Can this fixture be used with a 12 volt bulb on my current system?

Hello PJ - You can't put a 12v bulb in a 115v light housing. You can install the 115v light housing and remove the transformer that was required with the previous 12v light housing. 

Before you remove the transformer, we'd recommend checking your local codes. Some places require a 12v light fixture.
