How to Make Electrical Repairs – Part 3
Emergency electrical repairs using the heat shrink method makes a good tightly fitted insulated covering that helps protects the wire repair in this accessible electrical junction box also known as a ground box enclosure.

Ground Box Enclosure for Electrical Repairs of Direct Burial Cables.

Here is a quick overview of the installed junction box to make this splice accessible. This repair was for a set of #8 Gauge wires serving a water pump submerged in a pond. The buried Power and Communications conduit was not buried at the required 18 inch minimum and was snagged by a tractor. Because of the break in the conduit, I decided to place the splice into an accessible junction box. The splice method was crimp sleeves and heat shrink tubing. Below you will see a summary of the process.

  1. Brenda Ball says:

    Electrical repairs can be as major as having your home or place of business rewired or as simple as changing out a breaker in one of your breaker boxes. Often times it is hard to diagnose a specific electrical problem that you might be experiencing which makes it smart to call in a professional to assess the work you might need to get done. I think the remainders of your guidelines are great. Thanks.
