In-Ground Well Lights

If you are putting well lights in the ground (in concrete) be sure to use a fixture that is well sealed at the point the wire enters the fixture. If not properly sealed - water can be vacuumed into the fixture. This will cause excess condensation and eventually water will build up in the fixtures and corrode the socket. Some light condensation is normal in halogen light fixtures because of the heat of the fixture.
Below are a pictures of a fixture that is having problems with water entering from below:
