SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS!
Installation and maintenance of this circuit, the light, light
niche, and any other accessories attached to the circuit,
must be performed by a qualified, licensed electrician.
This is the safety alert symbol. When you see this
symbol in this manual, look for one of the following signal words and be alert to the potential for personal
injury.
The complete electrical system must be installed, tested,
and approved by a qualified, licensed electrician before
it is placed in operation.
Burn hazard. Never operate this light fixture for more than 10 seconds unless it is completely
submerged in water. This fixture requires total submersion for cooling.

the light.
warns about hazards that will or can cause
minor personal injury or property damage if ignored.
Except when the fixture is installed in an area of the
swimming pool that is not used for swimming and the
lens is adequately guarded to keep any person from contacting it, the fixture shall be installed in or on a wall of
the pool, with the top of the lens opening not less than
18” below the normal level of the pool.
The label NOTICE indicates special instructions which
are important but not related to hazards.
Carefully read and follow all safety instructions in this
manual and on equipment.
End user should save these instructions.
The junction box must be located:
GENERAL SAFETY!
• at least 4’ from the perimeter of the pool (unless separated from the pool by a solid fence, wall or other permanent structure,
Hazardous voltage. Incorrectly installed or
tested equipment may fail, causing severe injury or property damage. Read and follow instructions in owner's
manual when installing and operating equipment. Have
a trained pool professional perform all tests.
• at least 8” above maximum water level,
• at least 4” above the deck or ground level.
Junction boxes should be located off the walkway
around the pool and given additional protection by
installing them next to a fence, building, or other permanent structure. Make sure that the installation is in compliance with local codes, the NEC, and the CEC, as
applicable. See Figure 1, Page 4.
Risk of electrical shock. Before removing
fixture from pool wall, ALWAYS TURN OFF THE POWER
at the breaker.
All 12 Volt lamps require the installation of a 12 Volt
transformer.
The improper use of Ozone generators, Chlorine generators, Copper/Silver Ion generators or certain chemicals
for water purification may cause damage to the fixture.
When such water purification methods are used, be sure
to monitor the water conditions. Subjecting the fixture to
extreme conditions or harsh environments may cause
corrosion and premature failure of the fixture or its
components.
Install this light and light niche in accordance with
Article 680 of the National Electrical Code (NEC), in the
United States, or Section 68 of the Canadian Electrical
Code (CEC), as applicable, and all local code
requirements.
Install an approved Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter in
the electrical circuit for this light.
All devices in the system must be directly grounded to a
positive electrical ground. All devices in the system must
meet all applicable code requirements for bonding.
Cutting hazard if light is improperly
installed. This light is for use only in commercial and
residential swimming pools and spas. It has not been
designed, tested, or approved for use in wave pools,
lazy rivers, or other waterpark features, and should not
be used in them. Use in any application other than a
swimming pool or spa may lead to damage to the light
and cuts to swimmers and will void the warranty. StaRite will not be responsible for any damages or injuries
due to misapplication of this light.

INSTALLATION
Sunglow™ Lamp Housing Installation
(Refer to Figure 1)
Lamp Housing Installation
1. Be sure the power is off.
2. Place lamp housing on the deck above the niche.
Feed the cord into the niche and through the conduit
until the cord reaches the junction box. Make sure
that there is enough cord to allow the fixture to be
placed on the deck for re-lamping.
Glass breakage hazard. Do not push off
from the poolside against the light.
Installation of a 12 Volt transformer is required when
installing the 12 Volt model of this light. The transformer
must be located:
3. Make connections in the junction box (be sure to follow code requirements!). Connect the supply circuit
grounding wire (green, green and yellow, or bare copper) to the green ground conductor from the light fixture. Connect the line supply wire (the black or ’hot’
wire) to the black wire from the light fixture. Connect
the neutral (white) supply wire to the neutral (white)
wire from the light fixture.
• at least 10’ from the pool wall,
• installed near a grounded, 3-prong, 120V, GFCI protected outlet. If you do not have a GFCI protected outlet, have a qualified electrician install one.
Do not use a 3-prong adapter. The adapter voids the
grounding of the system.
Do not cut the grounding pin.
4. Wrap the cord around the lamp housing and place the
lamp housing in the niche. Be sure that the locator
tab on the bottom of the lamp housing is in the notch
at the bottom of the niche.
Do not use an extension cord! Purchase a light with a
longer cord.
5. Fasten the lamp housing into the niche with the captive screw at the top of the fixture (use a No. 2 Phillips
screwdriver).
