Extreme Dog Fence Waterproof Splices
Waterproof Splices: A Small Solution to a Big Problem
Waterproof Splices serve a crucial role in the installation and longevity of your electric pet fence. If you want your fence to perform its best, using them is helpful. First, our Waterproof Splices can be used during installation, to repair broken wire or replace existing wire. This is a safety precaution. Even though our Boundary Wire is made with high-quality polyethylene jackets, poorly spliced wires can still lead to corrosion.
On a small property, finding a corroded piece of wire may not be too difficult. But for trench dug wire on a 5-acre plot of land, finding a weakness in an electric fence is nothing short of challenging. By adding our Waterproof Splices, you’ll be doing everything you can to prevent this from happening.
How it Works
You simply take the ends of the two wires you want to connect and twist the included wire nut around the ends. Then you insert the nut inside of the capsule, which encases and protects the joined wires, with a tight, waterproof seal.
Our Waterproof Electric Dog Fence Splices will accommodate 20, 18, 16, 14 and 12-gauge wires. Splices are made in the USA, so we can guarantee quality.
Troubleshooting Your Electric Dog Fence
Already experiencing electric dog fence malfunctions? No problem. Is your dog able to pass through the fence? If so, check your dog’s collar first. Too loose or collars without battery charge is likely the issue. If that’s not the issue, it’s time to move on to the transmitter. Check that the indicator light is on and working. If no lights flash and there is nothing happening, you may have experienced a lightning surge. For that, we suggest a surge protector (more about that below).
The last and least likely issue concerns our splice caps and boundary wire. If your transmitter and collars are both working properly, it’s time to inspect the wire. If you are using proper waterproof splice caps AND a lightning surge protector, you should be safe from this step. If not, however, you will need to dig up your wire to discover the break or corroded wire.
Extra Protection with Lightning Surge Protector
Another great addition to your use of eXtreme Dog Fence Waterproof Splices is the use of a surge protector. Our Lightning Surge Protector plugs into the wall outlet. To this, you plug in your transmitter. If a bolt of lightning effects your home or the boundary wire, it prevents the transmitter from shorting. A lightning surge can render your transmitter completely useless, making your yard less safe for your pets. It’s not a chance worth taking. The Lightning Surge Protector is easily installed and protects your investment.
