How to Quickly Repair a Pool Light Niche

A damaged niche can lead to difficult and costly repairs, but it doesn’t have to. The in ground pool light adapter is easy to install, saving service techs and customers time and frustration.

The CMP Light Repair Adapter Fitting replaces a stripped or damaged pool light faceplate. This fitting is designed to take the place of the screw and notch connections on the light faceplate.


Normally, a damaged faceplate leads to a time consuming repair. This tool removes the biggest hassles that are a part of this pool service chore.

There is no need to pull the entire light cord and “fish” it back through again. The Light Repair Fitting opens up, allowing service techs to simply place the light cord inside before closing the fitting again.

Complete the repair without removing the light cord.

WARNING: Before working on a light, always check for a working Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI). If no GFCI is present you MUST notify the home owner of its absence. We recommend that the home owner sign a document acknowledging the fact that no GFCI is present and that they were advised that a dangerous electrical issue exists with the pool. We do not recommend performing any work on a pool without a GFCI. Taking these precautions help protect you from potentially devastating lawsuits in the event of an electrical accident involving the pool.
