Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Aqualuminator Pool Light is one of the best accessories available for an above ground pool. It adds a great “built-in” light look without drilling additional holes into the wall. Since it attaches to the pool through the existing return fitting cutout, installing and maintaining the Aqualuminator couldn’t be any easier. The Aqualuminator replaces the water return fitting where the filtered water would normally shoot back into thaqe pool through the “eyeball” or return jet.

Aqualuminator Assembly

Below are the assembly instructions for the Aqualuminator.

3

Remove the nut (bulb assy.) that holds the bulb to the body and tight against the flow director by turning counter-clockwise. This nut is accessible from the outside of the pool, and when removed, allows the light to also be removed.

From the inside of the pool, detach both the bulb assembly and the flow director.

IMPORTANT – Water will flow out of the back of the body if not covered with your hand between steps 3 and 4. As soon as the bulb is removed, water will be able to flow out of the pool. It may be helpful to have someone assist you during this process.

5

After they are removed, only the flange, gaskets and the body will remain connected. These pieces will stay connected and will not be disassembled. The new Aqualuminator pool light can now be inserted into the flange with the flow director. This will stop any water flow from the pool.

    I have this light and I noticed when it was installed that the water mainly flows out of one side of the light. Should it flow out of both sides?

      Hi Darlene,

      The flow director face ring of the above ground Aqualuminator pool light is only open for flow on one side to give the proper water flow pressure. You can turn the face ring to adjust the direction of the water flow by loosening the nut located under the back cap of the light.
