What makes the Hayward Underwater Lighting System so advanced? Start with its DuraNiche PVC niche series. Unlike metallic niches, DuraNiche is injection-molded of strong, durable PVC. Which means you can count on corrosion-free, all weather performance for years to come.
Reliability is further extended with DuraNiche's socket conduit connection. Designed for quick and simple gluing to PVC pipe, the connection provides a cleaner, more durable seal when compared to threaded-type conduit connections. Plus, the conduit hub is an integral part of the molded niche, which offers extra durability during installation.
DuraNiche also boasts a significant advantage in plumbing versatility. Each niche includes a 1", 45° spigot elbow that allows the choice of either top, rear or 45° conduit connection. In addition, the connection can be converted to 3/4" with the installation of a reducing adapter, also included with each niche.
For gunite and concrete pools, DuraNiche features a 3/4" set-back plaster flange with tie-off holes to secure to re-bar. This allows positive positioning of the niche during guniting and ensures a professional appearance in the pool wall. A cover-up plate is provided to protect the niche and mounting threads during guniting. Plus, a unique 90° ledge at the bottom of the flange prevents slumping during plastering.
DuraNiche niches are injection-molded of PVC for superior performance, non-corrosive durability and plumbing versatility - plus the lowest installed cost. When paired with a Hayward ColorLogic or AstroLite II light fixture, you have the best quality and value in a lighting system available anywhere.
