How do you replace the light fixture on an in ground swimming pool that doesnt have enough cord to bring it out of the pool?
The whole fixture should be replaced and the new one installed properly. There should be enough cord wrapped around the light in the niche to bring it up to the pool deck. You could drain the pool down, but I don't recommend it. When I see this condition, I don't take chances, I replace the whole light, cord, etc. Its not something to fool around with if you don't know what your doing. A: Call a qualified swimming pool electrician. He will bring the pool light and all related items to the light fixture up to code. This is not a job for an ammature.

How do you replace the pool light?
We need a few more details, but I can make a few assumptions. If this is an in-ground pool, and you have a standard pool light that is mounted in a niche that was installed in the sidewall of the pool, and you are replacing the bulb, then you should do the following: First and foremost, turn off the breaker switch that supplies the current to the pool light. On the rim around the light, you should find a screw (usually at the top of the trim ring) - unscrew this screw and the fixture should tilt out of the niche and literally float to the surface of the pool (there should be enough electric cable to allow the fixture to float up and be placed on the pool deck). Depending on the fixture model, you will now need to remove the glass - some will have several screws on the back side that screw into the trim ring, and some may have a clamp that incorporates the glass lense and clamps around the fixture. Both will involve a rubber seal, and it is a good idea to replace this seal at the same time the bulb is replaced - many pool supply shops or on-line stores will have this seal available, and if you have the model number of the fixture, it should be easy to locate. Once you open the fixture, inspect for any signs of water intrusion - this is possible if the seal has hardened. Remove the bulb, and inspect the socket for any corrosion - clean as necessary. Replace the bulb, install the new seal, tighten the seal clamp or the rear clamp ring to make sure the fixture is water tight. You could turn the power on the lamp BUT only for a second to make sure the lamp is good and rule out any issues with the fixture - IMPORTANT - Pool lamps should only be operated when installed in the pool to prevent heat build-up. If all is good, turn off the power at the circuit breaker; place the fixture back in the pool, loosely coil the excess power cable around the fixture, and install the fixture back into the niche. Line up any tabs that secure the fixture in the niche, and tighten the mounting screw. Turn on power, and test.

How do you remove the light bulb from the underwater light?
You need to remove the screw that holds the light ring and pull the whole light fixture out of the water and up onto the deck. There should be enough wire wrapped around the back of the light to allow this. Remove the lens, replace the bulb, and reinstall the lens with a new gasket, being careful not to get any water inside the fixture. Wrap the excess wire around the back of the light fixture and replace it in the niche, securing it with the screw. A. I would add: You need to test the GFCI, the wiring of the whole fixture - continuity test. If this is a fairly old fixture - my decision would be to replace the entire assmebly with a new one. If you have no GFCI then would be critical that you add one. And lastly but not least, you should have a pool tech service the light. He will know what to look for and how to correct any situation with your light. If there is something wrong with your light assy. and you do not find it by testing you put yourself and anyone who uses the pool in a great deal of danger if the light should malfunction. The codes specify that anytime you work on a pool light you then need to bring that product to current code. That also includes the main drain grate. Yes if you or a pool tech works on any portion of the pool for repairs the code demands that the main drain be brought to current code requirements. So it is not only a matter of just changing the light bulb and gasket.

Is a pool spotlight different from a regular outdoor flood light?
yes a pool light is typically a sealed unit. this is to prevent water from entering the light and coming in contact with the electrical components of the light. if water were to enter the light it could damage the light fixture and also trip the light breaker or gfci. in addition in some situations if the light were not installed correctly/electrically protected correctly (with breaker and gfci) could cause a dangerous situation to bathers. to change the light bulb in a pool light fixture the light fixture must be brought above the waters surface and the lense with lense gasket removed bulb changed then lense with lense gasket replaced and the light reinstalled in the light niche in the wall of the pool below the waters surface. you must also use the appropriate bulb for the light fixture. this is not as simple as just picking up a bulb from home depot and threading it in as you would do with an outdoor flood light. light repairs should only be performed by a trained pool professional as it could be dangerous if not done correctly.

How do you change the lite in an in ground pool?
Turn of the breaker to the light. Drain the pool (at least below the light). Unseal the light. Remove and replace the bulb. Re-seal the light (replace the gasket if the mfr recommends this). Turn on the breaker and check the light for function. Fill the pool. Check the light for leaks. Piece of cake, actually. It just takes a while to do. Don't forget to check the pool chemistry after filling it!
