Like Scott said, you'll probably not going to find "waterproof" sockets. 
The term "waterproof" indicates (at least in my profession) that the 
product was tested submerged under water to a certain depth, for a certain 
amount of time.  To pass, no water can enter the product. 

OTOH, "water resistant" products are tested in either a high humidity 
environment, or an environment which simulates a rainstorm and possibly 
driving winds.   

So, there's a big difference between the two.
