Adding a Pool Light

Pool lights can be placed in and around swimming pools and spas to enhance your pool design during the evening. During Realtime Walkthroughs, each pool light will illuminate during sunset, evening, and sunrise.

Pool lights and Landscape lights are very similar, and can be used interchangeably when needed.

To add a pool light:

1.   Click the Add Pool Light button that is found near the top of the screen under the Swimming Pool tab.

2.   Click the picture of the default pool light that appears to the right of the screen, and then select the light you would like to use.

3.   Click on your design where you wish to place the pool light.

The pool design shown below uses a variety of pool and landscape lights.


      Pool lights will illuminate during Realtime Walkthroughs when the time of day has been set to evening, sunset, or sunrise. For more information, see Environment Settings.

      The color of a pool light’s illumination can be changed as needed.

      Pool lights can be difficult to place if grid snap is enabled. You can toggle the grid snapping off by pressing Ctrl + G on your keyboard. For more information, see Snap Settings.

      The brightness of a pool light can be adjusted by modifying the Color property.
