    I came across this crapola installation at a property this week. What a basket case! The client had his friend who is a "lighting guy" from the City come up and install this mess sometime last year. All No-Name SS Underwater fixtures (non without visible water inside them already!) and some sort of LED MR16 lamp inside. I can only imagine what this looks like at night!

    It looks like they used some of that "Water Proof" tape. Man I need to figure out where to get that "Water Proof" tape.

    Maybe they used underwater fixtures because they heard global warming was gonna melt the polar ice caps and your lake would rise.

    they used underwater fixtures because they came with brackets that let them attatch to the tree and swivel/aim. Then they put in LED's because they did not want to change bulbs. It looks like this guy had some electrician training, those are weather resistant j-box connectors you can buy at lowes. but then you see electrical tape, and of course, electricians don't use that stuff. Gotta admit, James- this is the competition you have up there, it is easy to look good.

    I have been asked to have a meeting with the owner sometime soon. I am going to have to watch my p's & q's at first as I am pretty sure the owner is not aware of what he bought there.

    I plan on letting my portfolio and reference list speak for themselves... then ask the client to come on an afterdark tour of a nearby property. Also, Windermere House (my avatar here) is located in the next bay up the lake.

    LOL
    If customer is not aware what's he got from his friend - why he called you? Somebody need to understand what is goin there so they called somebody to remake.
