Default homemade lighting

I canr believe how expensive landscape lights are, even the ones that dont have a monster, inefficient transformer. I also would like a more evenly dispersed light which means more smaller ones. I plan on making my own.

saw polished stainless steel 1 1/4" drain pipes that would make good housings and small xenon or halogen 30 watt bulbes that would work nicely. Want to keep everything ac with a gfci.

Sealed for Reliability-

This kind of led bulbs are fully sealed with a front lens cover which is a great advantage over all other suppliers as most others have the leds exposed, the advantage here is they are not effected by the moisture, climate, water, salty air, etc.

Sockets are so cheap you can just silicone the hell out of them and replace that with the bulb when it goes out.
