Sockets

Hi everyone...haven't been here in a long time...been so busy but I'm trying to get back into the hobby I love, so here goes.

Last year my 100g crashed because of hurricane Irene and then a snowstorm that knocked out power for 7 days.
Somehow I think I got a surge because the loss of power resulted in a loss of my really really cheap made in china light fixtures...so
I purchased 2 Fulham workhorse 7 ballasts and 8x39watt T5HO bulbs to begin building a new fixture to hang over the tank.
I'm looking for waterproof, shunted sockets and I can't seem to find them.
Do they not exist?
I figured this would be an easy project but like everything else in life...it's not...
SO...
Any ideas?
Thanks
Drew
