This kit allows you to upgrade your exiting Pentair® Amerlite® Pool lights to color LED. Pentair® Amerlites® are identical to the previous name of American Pool Products® which Pentair® purchased and renamed as Amerlite®. This fixture is the most common fixture used in pools today. Found in well over 50% of all pools in the US. The front of the fixture looks like the picture below. If it looks like that and is approximately 11 inches in diameter including the rim, then this is the kit you need.
There are several options available. First you must determine if your light is 12VAC or 120VAC. Both look exactly the same, the only difference is the bulb inside which also looks the same. Some counties in the US require 12VAC pool lighting by law, most don't, but you could have either. Use the options above to select proper voltage. Using improper voltage will destroy the bulb.
Second option is the wattage, see description below:

12 or 120 Volt AC 18 Watts or 35 Watts We use Pool Tone® Color LED Bulbs which are 75 - 300% brighter than OEM
Our 18 Watt version has 244 individual smd RGB led's on the board
Our 35 Watt version has 488 individual smd RGB led's on the board
Depending on the size of your pool and the number of lights in your pool you may or may not notice a difference between the two versions
As a general rule of thumb, we recommend that if your pool is over 12,000 gallons or larger than about 10 X 30 Feet, go with the higher watt version. If your pool is around the dimensions listed above or smaller, save your money as you likely won't notice much of a difference. Our 18W version will saturate most pools with color, and only on larger pools do you notice the difference at the furthest parts from where the light is installed. Our 18W version is approximately 75% brighter than the comparable intellibrite light.
