Waterproof Wire Splices: A Big Problem Being Solved with a Small Solution
The longevity of your dog fence, as well as the installation process depend on utilizing waterproof wire splices. Firstly, our Waterproof Wire Splices can be used to replace or repair your existing dog fence wire. Even though our Boundary Wire is constructed with a high-quality polyethylene coating, if your wires have not been spliced correctly, corrosion can happen as a result.
For instance, on a small property, it might be relatively easy to find a corroded piece of dog fence wire. However, on a property that is multiple acres that was dug with a trencher, it would be much more difficult to do. To stop this situation from happening, our Waterproof Wire Splices will protect your dog fence wire from becoming corroded.
All that you need to do is to take the 2 ends of the wires that you wish to connect and twist them together. Twist the included wire nut around the ends you have twisted together. Now, insert the wire nut inside of the waterproof capsule. This capsule protects and encases the joined wires tightly together, with a seal that is waterproof.
These waterproof Electric Dog Fence Splices can be used with each and every one of the following gauges of dog fence wire: 20, 18, 16, 14 and 12. Since they are manufactured in the United States, their quality is guaranteed.
Troubleshooting Help with Your Electric Dog Fence
Perhaps you need help troubleshooting your existing electric dog fence that is malfunctioning. Is your dog breaking through the boundary that you have established? If this is happening, begin by checking your dog’s collar. A collar that is too loose is likely the culprit. Another possibility is that the battery in the dog’s collar has died. If neither of these apply to you, it is time to check the transmitter. Be certain that the indicator light is lit up. If nothing is happening, or on the contrary if it is beeping nonstop, it is possible that lightning has made its way through to your transmitter. To prevent this situation from happening, it is always a good idea to connect your transmitter to a surge protector from the get-go.
So, let’s say that your transmitter and collars are both working exactly as they should. The final thing to check would be your dog fence wire and your splice connections. If this is the case, you may need to dig up your dog fence wire to find out where your wire has broken.
About Surge Protection
Along with using waterproof wire splices, using a lightning surge protector is definitely recommended. Our surge protector directly plugs into the wall outlet. Your transmitter plugs directly into your surge protector. Here is how it protects your transmitter. Let’s say that lightning strikes your boundary wire. The lightning travels into your surge protector first, and then dissipates before moving into your transmitter. It prevents the transmitter from shorting out. If lightning strikes and you don’t have a surge protector, your dog fence transmitter can become completely fried. Our lightning surge protector is designed to protect your investment.

Not only do our Waterproof Wire Splices work with eXtreme Dog Fence Systems, they work with ALL other electric dog fence systems, including:
