Mostly, pool lights are there as a safety precaution. After all, you don’t want to go for a quick dip in the evening, only to find a moose taking a leisurely lap around your swimming pool. But they can add an aesthetic touch, too. The light show doesn’t have to end when the fireworks fade on the Fourth of July. These three products will keep your pool lit, beautiful, and inviting long after the smoke clears.
Billed as “the most unique swimming pool accessory ever created,” Envy’s Pool Stool provides a decorative seat that can be used both in and out of the water. A self-contained sand reservoir keeps these stools submerged, while 54 LEDs provide a wide range of colors. These illuminated seats are also adjustable, which allows their height to fluctuate between 22 and 31 inches and renders them ideal for pool up to four feet deep. If your pool already has too much color, Envy also offers the pool stools without LED lights, in one of three colors (sandstone, black granite, and white).
The Floating Lighted Pool Fountain from Hammacher Schlemmer can’t compare to the high-flying spectacle of Fourth of July fireworks, but the buoyant decoration does provide a pleasant waterworks display for up to five hours. The fountain shoots red-, green-, blue-, and yellow-hued jets of water up to three feet in the air. It also has 15 downward-firing LEDs that can simultaneously project additional colors on the bottom of the pool. This floating fountain will paint your pool a variety of colors, but you don’t have to get wet to turn it on or off — or adjust the display — thanks to a 50-foot-range remote control.
The Flatball XXS LED Lamp can light the path down to your pool, provide mood lighting for some late-night drinks, or create a serene scene on the water. These polyethylene “works of art” from Smart & Green operate in three different modes — static, changing color, and flickering candle — and work for more than five hours before they need to be recharged. According to the French-based company, the color changing mode cycles through 160,000 colors.
