The irony, of course, being the use of set screw connectors and couplings - not even the "old, leaky, formerly rain-tight" compression connectors.
I do have to wonder why the standards changed so drastically. I could understand if they drew a vacuum inside the pie while it withstood hurricane force wind & water, but couldn't a simple gasket of some type (neoprene?) have done the same thing as a complete re-engineer?
Oh, wait..... re-engineer = new inventory to replace old = $ for manufacturers.
