Why does swimming pool jet seem to sputter?

When I hear the term "sputter" in conjunction with swimming pool jet it usually indicates "air" returning back to the pool with the water. There are several reasons for this to occur, from low level of pool water causing the pool surface skimmer to draw in air, to, an air intrusion leak at or near the front of the pool pump. Several other possibilities can exist but, bottom line is the "sputter" is generally associated with air in the system.

Is it safe for water to enter a swimming pool light?

It is not recommended with most swimming pool lights for the sake of the light However swimming pool lights work on low voltage. the power goes through a transformer cutting it down for the sake of safety so even if you end up with a short circuit in the light there is no danger to the swimmers. In the 35 years I have been building and remodeling swimming pools I can tell you over 99% of pool lights are 120v. Certainly not low voltage. They are however since 1977 wired through a GFCI breaker to cut the power in the event of a short. I still run into older pools whose light is wired directly to a switch with no safeguards in place.
