I need light up about 960 square feet of translucent flooring from below. It's an outdoor installation, so it needs to be waterproof.
Further, it has to be done in a matter of just a few weeks, and, as usual, at a very low cost.
I'm planning on using LED rope lighting, as it can be waterproof and is easy to install.
But due to the modular nature of the floor I can't just run a lot of sealed cable from the rope lights to the power source(s), I have to have connectors under there that are waterproof as well.
It looks like I'm stuck with expensive twist circular power connectors, and a whole lot of crimping and wiring.
Are there other options? Cheap prewired waterproof extension cords I can cut in half so I only have to perform one connection per line would be nice, but I'm not seeing them.
I need about 10A at 120V through the most heavily loaded connector.
Worst case I was considering silicone heat shrink connections with IEC computer style cables, but that's not much less work and time than real waterproof connector crimping.
What other options might I be missing?
