I have an in ground pool that has a Pentair pool light with an orange sticker that says

lamp p/n993650,  lens gasket p/n 791016,

on the sticker it also says series 7884XX, 7844XX, 7894XX

watts 400, volts 120, bulb type R-40. 

use with model no. 7821XX, 7822XX, 7823XX, 79206700, 79208900 fixture housing

I need to replace the gasket and bulb due to leak through the old gasket and the bulb burning out. 

I was hoping to replace the white bulb with an an LED with color lights. 

Is there anything compatible for the gasket and multi color LED light.

Im looking at

Hi Adrian,

The gasket would be the correct gasket and I would assume that bulb would work but we don't have any personal experience with that particular bulb or its quality. We really like the PureLine Pure Colors LED Bulb 120V 35 Watt for $159 which we can confirm will work with your light fixture.

We also have a Video on How to Replace a LED Pool Bulb which you may find helpful.

Thank You


Thank You
