amerbrite_edison_screwThis is a game changer for the residential home owner. In the past we would have to pull an entire new light system from pool back at the pool equipment.  In some cases, removing or lowering the water level was an additional cost passed on to the homeowner.

Pentair has introduced the AMERBRITE® White LED REPLACEMENT LAMP.  What typically cost the homeowner $700 – $900 dollars in material and labor is now essentially a bulb change.

Installation Manual



AmerBrite LED lamps add the efficiency and luminous splendor of LED technology to the best-selling Amerlite light series. The convenient Edison screw base gives you a simple “plug and play’ replacement for your current Amerlite incandescent bulb. Simply unscrew your inefficient high-wattage incandescent bulb and replace with the brilliance of an AmerBrite LED lamp.
