Our pool has lights that have failed. One light has a bit of wire to work with - but not enough to completely clear the water. The other just has a short stub. The one light with a bit of wire still works. Lights on trips the breaker frequently - but not always. Plus it is an old incandesent that costs a fortune to run. The short one doesn't work at all.
I would like to either seal off the short one or splice enough cable on to it to replace it with an led pool light. I would like to replace the longer cable light with the led light and a spliced in cable.
Time constraints and cost of water discourage draining the pool. So I need to splice or seal off underwater. Note that the underwater seal off is most critical as the drawdown of the pool for the splice requires quite a bit less drawdown.
I have replaced many well pumps with splices that have lasted for years in brackish water so I am confident in the security and safety of underwater splices. But all of these splices have been made above water. A Google search turned up links to the splices I have used above water and too many warnings to never ever splice underwater (?).
Any leads to a system that would splice totally underwater would be appreciated. Or at least terminate the short wire. I would also be interested in a low voltage led pool light supplier (maybe a low voltage system wouldn't trip the breakers if my splices aren't perfect).
