Premier Lighting Case Study: Indoor Swimming Pool LED Lighting Retrofit


Customer Profile:

The Williston Fitness Center is owned and operated by the City of Minnetonka and features an indoor swimming pool/splash pad, tennis courts and many other amenities.


The current lighting environment consisted of T8 and T5 fluorescent as well as 1000 watt metal halide fixtures that were difficult to access and maintain. In addition, many of the fixtures were not providing adequate lighting and the hanging kits that supported them were corroding. The City of Minnetonka desired to replace the current lighting system with new LED fixtures designed for a Natatorium environment with better serviceable locations around the pool.


Before: Fluorescent T5 & T8 lamps


In working with several manufacturers, Premier Lighting determined the best plan of action and installed new LED light fixtures and hanging kits that are rated for the environment in easy to access locations around the perimeter of the pool.

After: new LED tubes and fixtures


The new LED lighting provided 20% brighter light and will save over $5,000 per year in energy. In addition, the LED light fixtures have a rated life of over 50,000 hours and are now in locations that can be easily accessed going forward.
