Swimming pool light leak


We have battled a leak in our in ground pool for years. We think its the light because we put a suction fixture around the light and it stopped leaking. Is there a contraption you can buy to enclose or cover the entire fixture? We have taken the light apart many times and failed to completely stop the leak.

Swimming pool light leak


We have tried to replace the conduit and silicone around it and it still leaks. We put a plastic cover over the whole unit and the leaking stopped. What can you make of that?

drop some food dye in the water near the suspected leak ... watch it flow to locate the leak .. that'll get you started in the right place
