LEDs have been used in a new series of lamps that are designed to be used in swimming pools.
Entitled the Mini Sub, the small fittings from Italian firm Teclumen are perfect for use in the shallow areas of pools, such as by the entrance steps or whirlpools.
Furthermore, it is possible for the devices to maintain a high light output, despite only including three LEDs which require about 10 W of power.
Consumers do not have to worry if they already have other products installed in their swimming pools, as the 12 V AC power supply means that the Mini Sub can easily be integrated with existing lights, the brand claims.
They are also available in a colour changing variety, which means that they could help to set the perfect mood in the pool.
If manufacturers want to ensure that their LED products last for as long as possible Charles Murray, senior technical editor at Design News, pointed out that it is important to keep them cool, as heat and light reduce their lifespan.
