Cant find the replacement pool light



I need to replace the light in the pool but we can't find the correct size. The one the pool supply sold us is a little to big and won't fit flush into the side of the pool. We don't have the original part so we can't fine a part or model number. Does anyone have any idea where we might be able to get a replacement. The pool was built in 1986-89

    I'll try..a swimming pool lamp is generally a PAR56 halogen lamp with screw terminals. Here's a link to an electrical distributor in San Anotonio. When you open the housing, there should be a lamp in an enclosed with about a 6 to 8 foot length of cord. Measure the opening of the housing whee the bulb fits in and use that as a diameter reference when calling/visiting them. Earl Ables coffee shop/diner still in business?
