I need to set up some temp lighting at a camp pool for a special night swimming weekend.

The pool currently has no lighting and needs to close at dusk

this will be a one time set up for a Friday and Saturday night

I was thinking of renting portable diesel light towers like the kind used for nighttime road work? Im not sure?

(2) Overhead lighting yielding at least 2 watts per square foot of required deck area or at least 20 footcandles of light that is directed onto the deck and the water surface so that the entire pool or spa bottom is clearly visible;

This is what I need to achieve to satisfy the County

Say the deck is 5000 sq ft. Would I just need to evenly space out 10,000 watts of light aimed towards the deck and then check with a light meter and see if I have 20 footcandles of light at the water surface?

Rent some Light-All units and call it a job well done.

Is the 2 watts per meter based on incandesant light or any light,
Cause MH is different ?
Much more efficent.

Otherwise just rent 3 x mobile towers each with 4 x 1000w
metal halides.

Easy, plenty light !

I can't help but to wonder how the county even got involved in this. This is (presumably) a private camp, and they're putting a thing on for a weekend. County employees don't typically work on weekends... so what happened here? Did someone actually screw up and call the county for special permission to put on this event that they'd otherwise not known about? :whistling2:
