IP65 requires “Protection from water, up to water projected by a nozzle against enclosure from any direction”

Even in a torrential rainstorm, I’ve never experienced anything that would be equivalent to “water projected by a nozzle from any direction.” And I live in Florida.

I would assume the “nozzle” in the standard to refer to a hose, not a power washer.

“Power washer proof” is a much higher standard than even submersible. You’re not even supposed to power wash your windows, for example. If you do, you’re likely to introduce new leaks into your house that didn’t exist before. I’ve literally fillleted the skin off my arm with a power washer before. It wasn’t pleasant.
