The exterior lighting of a house is one of the most important parts of the facilities.
You may think that no more than the clima or home automation, but being honest and since we like them to admire the home we live, making them envy our house at night depends entirely on it.
To install outdoors, for a long time I have only recommended the bulbs that come watertight from the factory and that have the light source incorporated, so that the electrician do not have to open it to “place the bulb”. Plug & play type, connect and go.
The firm will have already carried out its own tightness tests…
But so that the water does not enter, it is not enough not to open the equipment. When you connect a projector, you must check that the joints are tight and, above all, that the joint you have made is completely watertight. How?
The electrical tape is already for the twentieth century. Now, using gel-filled boxes is the best solution. But be very careful so that the stripped part of the cable remains inside the gel capsule, because if not, when the light is turned off, the decrease in temperature will have a suction effect and will make the water run through the cables of the hose to the inside the projector.
