Like debi1980 earlier in this thread...I have an old 120v Purex light and Purex niche in my 20k free form pool (~20x40'). I have just the one light, and no landscape or surrounding lighting. The light is strong enough to light the entire pool and provide decent ambient light. I'd like to step voltage down to 12v, and possibly go w/ LED (that's a nice to have not a must).
I see InyoRob recommended the Amerilite which I think would give me flexibility of LED or non. I think I'd be looking at Amerilite part 78438100 - 300w 12v 50' cord.
However, assuming my current R40 bulb is either 400 or 500w (I havent opened the fixture).....am I running the risk of losing significant brightness if I step down to the 300w 12v fixture?
Also, I see a 600w 12v transformer, are there brands that make higher wattage 12v fixtures? I'm assuming yes there are but they wont fit my niche?
Niche - Purex model # PLH-100-3 / PLH-100-5
