swimming pool underwater lights

underwater lights. I want to add a few underwater lights to my pool, in Mexico. I'm told that since this is being done after the construction, there is a higher risk of failure. question- are there any other options? i.e. surface-mounted; LED; self-contained; wireless?

any ideas on lighting up a pool w/out underwater lights?
shining a light from above?

Could you drain the pool and somehow stick a bunch of waterproof flashlights where you want the lights? (There are no bad ideas in brainstorming, right?)

I saw a thing once...might have been gizmodo (try searching there)...it floats and does a groovy projected LED light show...maybe try googling "FLOATING pool lights"...generally such things have an option to do just one color, if you don't feel like swimming in a disco...though, why you wouldn't, i have no idea...

What I'd be most worried about is the possibility of electrifying the water in the pool, killing the swimmers. When mixing water and electricity, I think it's a job for a pro, just in order to make sure they don't mix.

floating pool light (rechargeable)

Awesome looking LED fountains: light plus pump equals awesome

Spa lights (battery powered)

LED water lilies (battery powered)

Some of these sites are UK-based, but I imagine the same products are available in America.

These aren't underwater, they are floaty, but are also cool and color-changing and Solar-powered.

Batteries, not AC mains, please.
