Is this an April fool's day joke? SUBMERGED? Is this something only the Navy uses on their submarines? Has anyone ever installed one of these?

Thanks guys, you have a lot more experience than I'll ever get...

I've installed a few of them, but then again I work for an oceanographic research lab... [Linked Image]

If you need better than a NEMA 6P or IP68, you usually end up pressurizing the enclosure or filling it solid with potting compound.

No it's not. How do you think sump pumps are made? Or fountain lights?

I agree with Reno. Isn't a pool light NEMA 6p?
