There seems to be a rubber gasket around what looks like a bulb, but it won't come out easily.
Do I have to replace the entire assembly, or is there a 'screw in' fixture under there into which I can just put a new bulb? In a perfect world, I would like to replace it with one of those multi-color LED bulbs.
The part numbers that I can find on things are:
Face Plate: Hayward SP580A
Back Of The Main Assembly : Hayward SP0583L
Front of the Glass Bulb: HSP-540-Z1
Rubber Gasket: HSP-540-Z2
I'm hopeful this is as simple as screwing in a new bulb, but was afraid to be more aggressive in getting that rubber gasket away from the aluminum housing without trying to get advice from someone smarter than me.
Thanks In Advance
Unfortunately, in order to turn your standard pool light into a color LED light, you have to replace the entire assembly as the new light itself has a built in circuit board.
