Like most light bulbs, they also come in all shapes and sizes. You can also get them in different colors, hues, and even beams. They are considerably more expensive compared to other bulbs, but they’re a great investment, especially for outdoor lighting.
Low Maintenance is Key If the brand of the bulbs you’re currently using needs to be changed every other month, switch to something else. It’s a real hassle having to constantly change your light bulbs, especially since you’re dealing with underwater bulbs.

Don’t Forget Style Design is also important. The lights on your pond also needs to make it look good, so don’t skimp on the aesthetics. Be creative and try out different colors and beams.
Some lighting systems would even let you input a light pattern that changes the light’s color or lets it blink on and off for an interesting light show.
