I don't know the cost,and I think it will vary by the actual job conditions. But look into LED lights for your pool, the best!

I would certainly look into a long-life bulb to avoid future bulb replacement costs - though with the experience I have had with LED bulbs, I don't know that I would recommend that - seems the LED's live long lives, but the overall bulb fails in 10-20% of rated time because of electronic failure in the bulb base.

Replacement cost will depend a lot on whether you have drawn the water down 6-12 inches (or however far contractor wants it) below the fixture level or not, and also on whether you go with a matching size fixture or need to have the opening in the pool side modified. Try to avoid that needless expense.

I would say about $15-50 for parts (depending on whether it needs a new gasket or not) if just replacing the bulb, otherwise more like $200 range for an entire fixture/housing. Labor probably about $100-150 unless you are modifying the opening in the pool itself, which would be quite a bit more.

Ofcourse, you did not say WHY you wantto replace the fixture - if it just needs a new gasket and bulb or cover lens/gasket/bulb because it leaked or got broken, then you are probably in the $50-100 parts range and $100 range for labor.

Your Search the List category would be Pool and Spa repair.
