A niche area of electrical installation work, swimming pools offer a superb opportunity to let your imagination loose and design, install and commission a bespoke electrical installation.

Of course there is heightened risk of electric shock in the wet environment so the safety considerations are ever more essential, but the challenge to create dramatic lighting effects to enjoy are immensely satisfying for what will most likely be a once in a lifetime project for most customers.

Below are the details of the electrical side of a swimming pool project I completed. The brief, to design and install an electrical system for a purpose built pool house in the customers grounds. Lighting to be colour changing as well as having general lighting options, lighting and power for Sauna, 60m2 of electric under floor heating and lighting control from a smart phone app.

The internal lighting scheme consisted of general lighting LED recessed spot lights (for when you just want a quick swim) and 20 high powered Collingwood LED colour changing units installed in floor and ceiling (for when you want a party!) The combination allows for some dramatic colour changing effects:

Lighting control was via a smartphone/ tablet app and allowed for various on/off zones, colour changing control and full dimming facilities. A seriously smart tech gadget  and a really nice user interface.

All the glamour at the front end is backed up with the tech in the plant room, here we have lighting control systems:

The sauna room had fibre optic ceiling stars and colour changing fibre optic up-lighters also controlled from the phone app.
