    I hear ya! I just wanted to be clear, i was not trying to facilitate a cheap shot at FX or you I just simply wanted to show that it does happen and that i wasnt just pulling some garbage out of my butt to put them down. FX makes a better product then most and i have always admired their product line. But there will alwyas be a corroded fixture as long as you build aluminum products it just comes with the terrtory. Trade off......the light is $40 not $75.

    By the looks of things they forgot to use "Aerospace" Aluminum.

    I can't tell if that's a Peony or a Hellebore on the left, but either one would indicate a shady spot, plus the tree next to it... Locust maybe from the fallen leaves and little bit of visible trunk.

    So anyway, at least part shade during the growing season.
    Does it get sprinklers spraying on it?

    I'd be surprised if the fixture was under 10 years old. Is it a Hadco? (I don't recognize the design.)

    I think it's ready for the recycler.

    As the original thread starter I rest my case. Riposa in pace.

    That particular fixture would be a kichler 15381AZT, but it could also be a 15383AZT. The difference would be in the lamp configuration (which I can't see). Makes me sad.
