How to Winterize an Aqua Luminator Above-Ground Pool Light


An Aqua Luminator light is a useful addition to your above-ground swimming pool. It brightens the entire pool for nighttime swimming. Aqua Luminators also have snap-on color plates to change the color of the light. When it's time to winterize the pool, the light must be removed and the hole must be plugged. Once the water is drained below the Aqua Luminator light, you can remove and store it away for the winter season.

Things You'll Need

  • Screwdriver
  • Unplug the electrical cord of the Aqua Luminator. If the light is connected to a stationed transformer box dedicated solely for your pool, then turn the power off.

  • Insert a screwdriver into the access hole at the base of the light near the snap-on cord cap. Some older Aqua Luminator models have caps that turn open as well. The snap-on cap will expose the light's wires.

  • Disconnect the wire terminals from the bulb assembly. These terminals interlock into place. There will be no more than two wires to disconnect. Tuck the wires into the bulb assembly.

  • Remove the bulb assembly nut that secures the bulb assembly. This is located on the outside of the pool. Remove it by hand, turning counterclockwise.

  • Push the assembly bulb gently from the outside of the pool wall while pulling gently on the flow director on the other side of the pool wall. Place the cap or plug that came with your light into the assembly to seal it. Store the light away in a safe place. Do not leave it exposed to the winter weather. Store it in a box or bag for next season.
