I have a romex cable feeding an outdoor yard light.

It was cut, I spliced it, soldered it and wrapped it with tape. Is there a way to splice and bury it safely to code?

If not, I'll need to dig a 30 foot trench to replace the whole length.

  • wikihow.com/Splice-Wire Method #3 is my prefered way. Make sure the glue from the sleeve covers the entire cable all around, to prevent water from entering the splice.

    Go to your local hardware store and buy an underground splice.

  • @DaveTweed it was already on here so why create a duplicate?

    Flagged for mods. The other version has a live user attached, so it's probably the one to keep.
