How much water should be over the lens for Swimming Pool fixtures?

There should be at least 18” of water over the fixture lens as per NEC Code. The fixture must be completely submerged under water at all times in order to operate properly as it is not a wet and dry fixture. Using less than the 18” is a violation of the NEC and could cause the damage to the fixture and a void in warranty.
