Waterproof Wire Connectors for Irrigation Valve
Waterproof wiring connectors should be used on all irrigation wire connection that is underground or in any environment that could become wet. Most irrigation control valve connections are made in a valve box. The valve box will fill with water during rainfall as well as when the irrigation system is running. This will cause wire connection that are not water proofed to be exposed to the water. This will cause shorts and corrosion of the wires.
The water proof wiring connectors used on irrigation wiring serve two purposes. They provide and insulation to the water, and also help to prevent oxidation / corrosion to the wire connections. Water proof wiring connection is a must on all wire connections used throughout the irrigation system for that reason.
