Waterproof Wire Splices: Solving a Big Problem With a Small Solution
Both the installation process of your dog fence, as well as its longevity depend on using waterproof wire splices. First of all, our Waterproof Wire Splices can be utilized to repair or replace your existing dog fence wire. Although our Boundary Wire is made with a high-quality polyethylene coating, if your wires are not spliced correctly, corrosion can be a result.
For example, on a small property, it may be easy to find a corroded piece of dog fence wire may be not so difficult. However on a property that has multiple acres with a trench that was dug, it would be much harder to do. To prevent this situation from happening, our Waterproof Wire Splices will protect your dog fence wire from corrosion.
All that is needed is to take the ends of the two wires that you wish to connect and twist them together. Twist the included wire nut around the ends. Next, insert the wire nut inside of the capsule. This protects and encases the joined wires tightly, with a waterproof seal.
These waterproof Electric Dog Fence Splices can be used with each of the following gauges of dog fence wire including: 20, 18, 16, 14 and 12. Quality is guaranteed, as they are manufactured in the United States.
Help With Troubleshooting Your Electric Dog Fence
Perhaps you already have an existing electric dog fence. Is it malfunctioning? Is your dog able to get through the boundary you have created? If this is the case, check your dog’s collar firstly. It is very likely that a loose collar is the culprit. It is also possible that the battery in the collar has died. If that isn’t the case, it is time to check the transmitter. Be sure that the indicator light is illuminated and is working. If the light isn’t illuminated and nothing is happening, it is possible that lightning has made it through to your transmitter. To prevent this from happening, it is a good idea to connect your transmitter to a surge protector.
Let’s say that your collars and transmitter are both working properly. The final thing to do would be to check your dog fence wire, and your splice connections. With that being said, if you are using a lightning surge protector and waterproof wire splices, it is safe to say that you shouldn’t need to check your wire. If there is still a problem, you would need to dig up your dog fence wire to find out where the break is.
About Lightning Surge Protectors
In addition to using Waterproof Wire Splices, a lightning surge protector is highly recommended. Our Surge Protector plugs directly into the wall outlet. Your transmitter gets plugged directly into this. Let’s say lightning strikes your boundary wire or your home, the surge protector prevents the transmitter from shorting out. If lightning hits and you don’t have a surge protector, it can render your dog fence transmitter completely useless. This is a chance that isn’t worth taking. Easy to install, our Lighting Surge Protector will protect your investment.
