Check the voltage of your pool fixture


Please read the appropriate section below for tips on verifying the correct voltage

If you think you need a 120V bulb:

A 120V bulb will not function in a 12V pool light system. Many customers assume their system is 120V because the fixture is labeled as such. But, often times, the previous owner converted the light to 12V without changing the label on the fixture. We want to make sure that you are positive that your fixture is indeed 120V. If you are unsure, here are a couple easy ways to check:

  • The existing bulb (not the fixture) has a 120V marking on it
  • Install a standard household 110V bulb into the pool light fixture. If it illuminates with proper brightness (without flickering), then your pool light fixture is 120V.

If you have not purchased the light yet, please select the proper voltage version of our light. We sell both 120V and 12V.

If you determine that you already bought the wrong voltage bulb, please contact us at info@nomoregreen.com so that we can exchange the bulb for the correct voltage.

If you think you need a 12V bulb:

A 12V bulb cannot be installed in a 120V pool light system. Since 80-90% of pool light fixtures in the U.S. are 120V, we want to make sure that you are positive that your fixture is indeed 12V before installation. If installed in a 120V fixture, the bulb will blow out instantly. If you are unsure, here are a few ways to check:

  • The existing bulb has a 12V marking on it
  • There is a 12V transformer visible
  • Install a standard household 110V bulb into the pool light fixture. If it properly illuminates, then your pool light fixture is NOT 12V. If it does not illuminate properly, then you indeed have a 12V fixture.

If you have not purchased the light yet, please select the proper voltage version of our light. We sell both 120V and 12V.
