2.5 Listing:
  All cables shall be tested physically and electrically in accordance with UL 1551.
   
2.6 Splicing Recommendations:
Wire splices are the weak link of any electrical circuit. It is especially important to make proper joints in irrigation systems because the joints are exposed to wet and damp environments that can cause corrosion of the copper conductor, and premature failure. Paige Electric recommends the strict use of Model DBR/Y-6, as manufactured by the 3M Company (Paige specification P7364D) for splices of 14 AWG 2 or 3 conductors. For 12 AWG and splices of 4 to 6 conductors, Paige Electric recommends its Re-enterable connectors
(Paige Specification P7408D)
