cheers. trouble is, might have to be abit smaller, basically, got a fountain outside, gota bury the joint in soil, and the normal ip56 ones probable ain't the best to use, unless i fill full of silicone!

IP56 will suffice seen as the box isnt going to be immersed under pressure is it.

thats what i thought. use an ip56 box with a bit of silicone. that should suffice. cheers.
