Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I buy my underwater LED light from Aqua Dock Lights?
We believe our products speak for themselves. From our variety of colors to our long lasting LED bulbs and durable housing, we know that you will enjoy your underwater LED lights for many years to come. We offer an easily-cleaned, environmentally-safe product that is sure to turn your water environment into a gorgeous display of marine life. With multiple colors and configurations, up to 40 ft (Apollo series) or up to 60 ft (Mega-Watt series) glowing diameter of light, and a completely adjustable depth, you’re getting a product that is completely customizable to your individual preferences when you purchase your underwater light from Aqua Dock Lights!
How much light can I expect from my underwater LED lighting system?
The diameter of light produced is directly related to the clarity of your water environment and also the depth from the surface that the light is adjusted to during installation. The optimal installation depth from the water’s surface is 4-8 feet. Your light will function at depths up to 30 feet, with the trade-off being less light at the surface.
In a typical installation, the diameter of light emitted is up to 40 feet for the Apollo series and up to 60 feet for the Mega-Watt series. For murky water, we recommend the Mega-Watt series due to its increased light output.
When will I need to replace the LED bulb?
The life expectancy of our underwater LED lights is over 100,000 hours, so you can expect your light to last for many years to come without the need to replace the LED lights. When used an average of 8 hours per night, for 7 days a week, the LED lights have a life expectancy of over 34 years!
How much power consumption do our underwater LED lights use?
Our low-voltage underwater LED lights are converted through a digital driver from 110 to 24 volts DC. Our lights consume less than 1 amp. The power consumption from our lights are comparable to an 80-watt conventional light bulb. If used 6-8 hrs per night, it will cost $4-$6 per month on average. Our competitors’ underwater LED lights will cost their customers $25-$35 per month on average if used 6-8 hrs per night.
How long is the power cord?
Our underwater LED lights come with a standard 40-ft power cord. We offer longer power cords up to 120ft, in 40ft increments at $1.25 per foot.
How far below the surface should I install my light?
Since our underwater LED lights are buoyant and connected to a completely adjustable tether, the depth of the light is up to you. Water clarity should be considered when deciding what depth your light should be adjusted to. 4-8 feet is the recommended depth for the best performance.
Since our light is buoyant, the provided 3 lb weight sits on the bottom and the light can be adjusted to your desired depth below the surface.

Our underwater LED lights are designed to be safe for the environment while attracting a natural food chain by attracting bait fish which in turn will attract larger fish making your waterfront property a virtual aquarium! For the avid fisherman, seeing fish take the bait is a “REEL” thrill!
What colors are available for Aqua Dock Lights?
We are proud to offer 5 different underwater LED light color options: Green | Blue | Red | Orange | White.
Although all of our colors are beautiful, attract fish and offer completely unique effects, we do recommend the blue or green lights if you’re looking to attract the most marine life. If you can’t decide on a single color, you can always choose our “IRIS” series, which produces 2 colors at the same time. The “IRIS” series features a center color that is surrounded by an outer color. This patent-protected feature is yet another exclusive innovation and is available for both “Apollo” and “Mega-Watt” series to fit your needs.

Are the lights safe to swim around?
Yes, they are indeed safe to swim around. With safety being a top priority, the underwater LED lights offered by Aqua Dock Lights operate on safe low voltage DC (direct current). Our specially designed AC to DC transformers incorporates internal electronic overload protection.
Are there any added safety benefits to the lights?
Yes, indeed! An added safety benefit to lighting your waterfront property is for any person (especially small children) or pets that may unintentionally fall into the water at night. Your underwater LED light is a life-saver. Even for a grown adult falling into dark water is a disorientating and life-threatening event. With illuminated water, disorientation is either eliminated or greatly reduced.
