Electrical Question from Robert about 220 Volt Wiring Splices
Question: Can I splice behind drywall with or without an electrical box for aÂ 10 gauge dryer circuit wire using a Tyco cpgi-hs-slice-kit-uf, UL E91151 and be within code?
Thanks for your electrical question.
Hi Robert – No, you may not conceal any electrical splice. All electrical splices or wiring modifications must be contained in an approved electrical enclosure that is accessible. This can be a junction box that has a blank cover placed on it as long as it is accessible from either side of a wall or accessible within an attic, crawl space or basement area. The only exception applies to direct burial cables where approved splicing methods are used.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
