I was working on a job today, 42 fixtures installed. I agreed to try and repair and rebulb the original nightscaping fixtures he had installed a few moons ago. classic pathlighters, and of course well lights. Instead of the ole-time pars, these are the modified hybrid 2 axis mr-16's. So this fixture can't be much older than 15 years old or so. they still make this item, and I am guessing the same design. It boggles my mind that I go out of my way to find bullets that are ABOVE ground that have silicone or high heat rubber o-rings at the glass or shroud cover, AND they are sealed where the wire goes into the bottom, preferably with liquid silicone at the factory as opposed to a rubber grommet. I even add silicone at the bottom sometimes. And the Nightscaping fixture, you know, the name folks associate with quality landscape lighting, folks that have made fixtures for what, 20, 30 YEARS they have...nothing. no orings. the bottom just has 2 dimples and you turn it 1/8" ( 2 of them broke apart that were so corroded) and there is nothing to keep water from coming in. the wires go in the back throough 2 holes and they have no gasket or anything. The covers sort of do, but 3 of the 6 are loose. I found 1 that looked like someone put silicone on the top. How could it not be important when this fixture was made to make efforts to be water tight? All of them were like this. This thing sets below grade ! snow just sits in it, it is easy to flood this fixture with water during a downpour. Of course the previous installer did not use any type of water proof connection so it didn't matter, but still, WHY did nightscaping sell it this way? I believe this fixture runs around 70-90 bucks at my local distributor, so I would gather they sold this for enough dollars to build it right, Why didn't they?
