Incandescant pool light: Change to LED bulb...or whole new unit ?

Had a pool guy replace the burned out R40, 500w bulb in our 1993 in ground pool. I was considering a white, LED bulb for next replacement.

Nothing showed up on a search here. Not sure about bulbs from my Google search. Can't tell. Can I buy a bulb for $40+ or do I need a new unit in the $200 range?

Thanks

Here's one on Amazon...but lumens are quite a bit lower than the incandescent.

Reviews are pretty bi-polar too

C.T. illustrated a basic LED replacement.

For a high intensity replacement or multi colored requires the replacement of the lamp assembly inside the niche. That would require pulling a new cable thru the conduit as these replacement inserts are sealed and come with a preattached power cord.
