I really only have Par36 underwater lighting experience with the Focus SL11. Other than that I am sure you can look maybe to Hubble or Hydrel for another option but expect the cost to be really high.

Focus, RSL and Clarolux each offer a PAR underwater light. There are probably more.

Joey,
Instead of calling your underwater light 'Nautilus', you should name it the "AQUARIUS". All of your lights are named after something celestial in the heavens or some other phenomenon in space. The constellation 'Aquarius' means "water bearer". So there you go, you can continue your celestial names for your odyssey line without coming back to Earth.

Oh man, I just wish we called the light "The Stainless Steel Underwater Light."

Nightscaping Dolphin in cu, it's been around since the turn of the century. Lamp changeouts are no joke though as you must break and remake a silicone seal. I like the little bite mark they have in the plastic lens. Looks like a Dolphin took a nip out of it.

Thanks Pete, I will check it out. I still don't know why nobody makes an enclosed fixture for the par. I can't imagine they get any hotter than an MR.

Tim. I have stayed out of this for a bit. I think you might be better served with a MR16 fixture and lenses then with a PAR36 --- esp in an underwater application.

That being said, it is true that NS makes the dolphin, but it will be a service challenge over time. They do make a steel version which makes no sense to me so the copper would be the way to go. (note to others: there cannot be any aquatic life in the pond that you install a copper fixture in, it will kill the fish.) Here is the info on servicing the Dolphin. http://www.nightscaping.com/instruct...mp_dolphin.pdf

If you are stuck on using a PAR36 underwater fixture, then I would be looking to Hydrel. They make some awesome specification / architectural grade underwater fixtures. I have not reviewed their line to see if they have a PAR36 fixture but it would be worth a look. http://www.hydrel.com/Products/Categ...ool%20Fixtures

A picture of the dolphin is attached.

Have a great day.

Thanks James,
I have heard about trying to change the bulb out on the dolphin. The advice I received was throw it away and buy a different light simply because it is such a pain to replace and reseal. I am sure I will end up going with MRs since my search is yielding little to no prospects in the par section. I am still curious why it is so difficult to find a fully enclosed one. I imagine it is simply a cost issue.

You mean the little bite out on the lens hasn't sold you? I fell for it hook line and sinker.

I think that is the only Copper underwater light I have ever seen.
