Replacing a floodlight

    Hi, I was hoping someone could help me, what do I need to buy to replace the entire light fitting for this floodlight?

    Ideally, I wanted an led replacement which fits on the same way so I don't need to drill new holes or anything, and I can just wire it up. When I search, I can only find floodlights which are attached by the back squared frame.

    Photos below.

    Kind regards,

    Ash

    It doesn't work like that, Asha. You will need to drill holes to mount the bracket and make some changes to the conduit. Best get a sparky.

    Ash, I am amazed that the light is still in place. PVC conduit and one PVC spacer bar saddle as support. Pvc conduit is not intended to support any weight other than the cables inside it.

    You may find one on eBay, but as people have said above, existing installation is poor, and needs to be made good. You are lucky it’s not fallen down in the high winds we have had recently. It’s not a difficult job and plenty of you tube videos that show you how, but if you are not confident or have the tools get a electrician or a competent tradesman.

    Thank you everyone! I'll definitely just replace it properly with an electrician. The house came with it like this when I moved in. Few other electrical issues so I think the previous owner skimped out.

    Make sure he has a head torch before making him go up the ladder!
