This does not necessarily meet your request for "cheaper", but I have 2 suggestions that otherwise will likely solve your problem: Consider underwater pond lights. I use them above water along a creek bank that is prone to occasional flooding. After about a year or so, there have been no leak or condensation problems. This is in Texas, but they ...

"The lights are supposed to be IP66 waterproof" That's not very helpful if, in reality, they clearly aren't. Unfortunately, you bought junk :( There may be some point to messing with the products you got and fixing them (because as-is they are broken by design), but it's your call as to whether it's worth the trouble or not.

If water is accumulated and comes out faster or more you may have to cut ...

Or should I just disassemble everything and bring them to Home depot or Lowe's for help? Yes, take the cartridge to Lowes and look for a match. If you can not find a match then go to a plumbing supply house.

Thank you all for the help here. The plumber who installed the rough out did not install the valve within side, thus cold water got inside the hot water line. Yesterday he came back, installed the valve to make things working again. Thank you all again.
