I've used these guys for some fiber optic lighting around pool installations. Check out the gallery for some neat lighting ideas.

Sparky:
If you're looking for uplights (indirect), Compact fluorescent or HID, try Ruudlighting.com They also have some low voltage track & low voltage fixtures.

Just remember they're not "decorative", but functional. (The LV looks good)

You can also get a catalog from customer service (1-800-236-7000)

The "fiberstars" type stuff is nice, we did a 24 volt cove light setup, zenon bulbs for a "white" light, and dimmed the whole set-up. It looked real good! And yes, it was not cheap by any means.

i'd like to convince this customer into a fiberstars setup as i'm somewhat apprehensive about floor ligthing around a pool perimeter.

Q~ is there anything is 680 about that ??
