  • SPLICING RECOMMENDATIONS: Wire splices are the weak link of any electrical circuit. It is especially important to make proper joints in landscape lighting systems because the joints are exposed to wet and damp environments that can cause corrosion of the copper conductor, premature failure, and fires. We recommend using Silicone-Filled Wire or our 3M manufactured Direct Bury Splice Kits.
