4.0 SPLICING RECOMMENDATIONS
  4.1

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. Here are Paige Electric's recommendations:

  • For direct burial, above ground, or in valve box installations: Model DBR/Y-6 as manufactured by the 3M Company (Paige specification P7364D)
  • For installation above ground or in valve boxes: Models 316IR or MGC as manufactured by the 3M Company (Paige specification P7365D), or Silicone-filled wire nuts as manufactured by IDEAL Industries (Paige specification P7372D)
