moisture resistant TV..

My kid's swim club needs to replace a LED tv near the pool deck. The last one was a cheap 26" and it lasted 3 years. I'd like to replace it with a better suited TV. At work we have environmental sealed electronics, but I've never heard of a TV like that. Then of course is the $ factor. I don't want to spend a fortune. A sealed box won't work as the moisture will still permeate. Actually I think the bigger cause of failure here is the presence of the pool chemicals reacting to the rubber/plastic components, causing them to fail.

Anyway does anyone have a suggestion for a TV?

Check this one out, will bite deep in your wallet, but it is an outdoor tv.
46" LED "Smart" Outdoor TV - Sky 4630 $2,799.00
I would keep buying regular led/lcd TV's and the extended warranty for it.
just my 2c's.

those TV's use a cooling fan that draws air in. Besides price they won't work.

I like the idea of an extended warranty but, I wonder if that may cost as much as the TV.

The tv in our pool deck did last a long time, well, it still works after 7 years! And we have conservation area behind our house. It is under the porch, rain, dust, winds, bugs, and still working!
The ext. warranty usually cost like $49.00 to $69.00 depend of the size of the tv and no questions ask in walmart/best buy if you need to fix it. (Replace)

This enclosure

Also silica gel packs in the cabinet will absorb moisture well, they can be recharged periodically by drying them in a low temp oven.
