    what he said.
     
  4. Sounds like it is 18-14uf. Color to Color using king watertight splices. Might have to buy some single strand 16ga to get enough slack. Just get white for the common.

    Sounds like you need a new irrigation system.

    You'll need a five foot section of the same multi-strand to give you room
    to make the splices & a 10" round v.b. to spot the splice in, just in case.
    I use heat shrink butt splices that the septic guys turned me on to, rather
    than King "blues".

    A 6" VB would have treated you right...
