How do you? Say a completely cut line in the yard.
Add a piece of wire, splices in 6” rounds.
I recently repaired 13 strand cut in a couple of places. Used WP wire nuts and then wrapped in heat shrink rated for direct burial. Felt good about it but time consuming. Just looking for different ideas
Time and Material is your friend
I commend you for always tossing out random scenarios for discussion Arthur!
I’d say the biggest issue being lack of verification of continuity and wire integrity, I’ve been bit by cutting a corner or two and once it’s all together it starts doing funny things.
I like one standard or2 ten inch boxes for the splices.
Regular wire nuts for testing and dry cons or Ace (my favorite) for final final.
Tested everything for sure before buttoning up. Wiring is the most difficult part of problem solving in irrigation
There used to be a "splice-box" pipe fitting, consisting of a hinged cap that would glue onto/into PVC pipe, so one could actually maintain surface access to a splice without using a valve box.
Screw those things. Around here they used to be used as valve boxes. They are impossible to find without using a locator. Everytime a see one, I shed a tear.
I tend to prefer the 3m dby kits (wire nuts inside tubes full of some sort of goo) myself.
