In my experience with vinyl pool lights it can only be 3 thnigs;around the light'not haveing a gaste;i would chack the light;the gsate;see if that would help;if that don't work i would put it a new light

this guys pretty smart and has some good advice huh??...yea right!

first of all if your light is leaking call a professional to repair it!! if you must insist on becoming a weekend warrior and trying to repair it yourself...go get yourself some 2 part water resistant epoxy...pull out the light from the niche and puddy the gap between the conduit and the light niche itself. This is where they leak from most of the time. If that's not the case then youll want to try the gasket itself that you can see without removing the light. Hope this helps!!

I tried putty with the light box empty. Worked great, for about 10 days. Then I got mad. Fortunately I had a handy family. We cut out the concrete above the light, about 18" square-very tough job. Dug down to the light box with a post hole digger. Then created a new seal with plastic conduit, stainless steel washers and a brass nut (couldn't find a stainless steel nut). Then the entire area was covered with Shoo Goo (found at Walmart in shoe dept) plumbers swear by this stuff. Filled the hole with crushed stone, not dirt. Compacted it and repoured the concrete with 120lbs of concrete from Lowes, just mix with water. Its fixed correctly and will not leak! Sure it was alot of work but to do it right you need to get to the source nut just patch it. Would easily have cost about $1,000 to have someone do it. Cost me about $55, and 6 hours of labor.

What is a vinyl lined inground pool?

An inground pool is typically lined with either gunite (concrete), fiberglass, or vinyl. Gunite and fiberglass are roughly the same cost, whereas vinyl is considerably cheaper. With the lower price comes less durability, as vinyl lining has to be replaced every 8-10 years or so, whereas the other two can last for decades. Vinyl is also much easier to puncture or otherwise damage. That said, many people still prefer vinyl inground pools due to the lower cost.
