With relaxing water flow and soothing effects, it’s obvious to see why waterfalls are the ultimate features in outdoor waterscaping in San Diego. If you want to get the maximum effect from a waterfall and improve its intrinsic elegance, light up the night using well-placed pool waterfall lights. Well-lit waterfalls create magical poolside evenings by transforming a nighttime landscape dramatically. Pool waterfall lights also offer added safety by lighting up dark water features during the night.
Here are some information about pool waterfall lights:
There are several options for pool waterfall lights. The three regular options include fiber optic, and solar. Affordable solar lighting, such as fiber optic lights, does not need electricity in the water. This makes them both worry-free and eco-friendly choices. While fiber optic lights are easy to customize and do not need electrical components in your water, it’s the best choice of the three. LED lights are affordable and generate bright light with an inexpensive operation. But regardless of which lighting you select, placement is important.
Using subtle underwater illumination provides waterfalls an ethereal feel. The type of waterfall will determine the placement of underwater lighting. You can also use underwater lighting to illuminate pondless waterfalls.
Illuminating on a tight budget
You do not need to spend a lot of money on pool waterfall lights. Having floating lights, clever candle placement and lanterns all add ambiance and romance to a water feature without any difficulty of installation, the associated costs or wiring. They are also a great way to have a feel for which sections of your waterfall you want to light up if you want to install lights later on.
In terms of light placement, there are only two options: underwater or exterior. The options are limitless with creative usage of exterior lighting.
Foliage, trees and other landscape features that surround your waterfall become expressive with subtle lighting. You can use exterior pool waterfall lights to accentuate specific details and not have to bring in any electricity to the water itself. In addition, you can illuminate a waterfall using rock lights. These are usually incorporated during the installation of a waterfall. They are wired with lighting to go well with your waterfall at daytime and light up important features during the night.
Challenges with waterfall lighting
Using LEDs to illuminate a waterfall creates a beautiful end-result. But the difficult part is getting compatible lights. Usually, the number one problem is finding something which conforms to the contours of the fountain without having to compromise function or style. You do not necessarily need to light up the water from the interior. But creating a wonderful glow along ledges or underneath rocks is a good way to create a wonderfully finished look.
