Hi there, my pool light bulbs are ALWAYS burning out. Pool was opened yesterday. I check the two bulbs, one is out. Luckily I had a spare, I replaced it, then about 5 minutes late the other burned out. They are old light housing that will be replaced this year or next.

Anyways, the bulbs are damn expensive. 60W incandescent costs me $30 at the pool store! It comes with a gasket that goes around the bulb (they can be reused if they are still in good condition).

I found some bulbs that look almost identical to the ones I buy at the pool store. There is a slight difference on the back. Can anyone tell me if I can use these bulbs? They are philips. I found them at a store for $2.50.

I have attached images of the two bulbs (the dirty one is from the pool store), the philips one is the one in question.

Thanks in advance.
