Frequently Asked Questions
There are a lot of questions about LED lighting for water treatment facilities. So we’ve curated a list from first-time buyers and repeat customers. Check out our most-asked questions below or call us at (888) 423-3191 to find the right lighting for you.
What Is LED Lighting for Water Treatment Facilities and Wastewater Plant?
Dangerous conditions are created within these facilities as methane gas is a by-product of this water treatment process. Keeping the building and employees safe can be achieved by using LED lighting solutions. LED Lights are the right lighting solution over conventional lights in terms of saving energy and reducing maintenance costs. LED Lighting products use less power over HID lights like Metal Halide and fluorescent lighting solutions.
What Are the Benefits of using a LED Lighting Solution in Wastewater Treatment Facilities?
These lights are extremely robust, safe, and industrial grade. They will provide years of high-quality light while reducing both utility costs and maintenance since they do not require bulb replacements.
When Does It Make Sense to Use LED Lighting in a Water Treatment Plants?
Does the water treatment facility produce methane gas in quantities large enough to create an explosive environment? Does the environment contain corrosive chemicals? In concentrations that a spark from light could create an explosion? Then consider using Explosion Proof Lighting for hazardous locations.
Your local government will mandate the use of these lights in such conditions.
What Makes Light Fixtures Durable Enough for Water Treatment Environments?
These lights are very robust. They’re industrial grade with heavier casting, high impact ratings, and special finishes. In the case of explosion-proof lighting, it’s the lights’ design and engineering that comes into play. It keeps explosions created inside the light from causing an explosion.
How Do You Install Lighting in a Water Treatment Facility?
Always use a licensed electrician who’s familiar with your environment as your best option. Following the instructions and local code is the best way to install these fixtures.
How should I choose between Class 1 Division 1 and Class 1 Division 2 for water treatment plants?
The answer is quite simple.
Class 1 Division 1 should be installed in areas where they threat of explosion is ALWAYS present.
Class 1 Division 2 should be installed in areas where threat of an explosion is SOMETIMES present.
If you are unsure, check with your local licensing board or engineering department associated with your facility.
What is the expected lifespan of LED lights used inside a water treatment facility?
Used 12 hours a day, 365 days a year, you should expect a lifespan of 10 + years, with zero to little maintenance.

What Are the Different Types of Lights That You Can Use in These Environments?
The biggest decision is to decide whether you need Class 1 Div 1 or Class 1 Div 2 Lighting. The difference between these classifications is whether methane gas or other explosive gases, are always present (C1D1) or sometimes present (C1D2).
How energy efficient are LED Lights over traditional light sources?
LED Lights are significantly more energy efficient, and you can expect at least a 50% reduction in energy savings over traditional light sources, like metal halide and high-pressure sodium lighting.
