"Use Foam for Underground Splicing:"

From: Larry browndog@shentel.net

To splice telephone or smaller guage uf cable-first cut the cable in half if its not already,then slide a 1" pvc pipe over one end of the broken cable,stagger the wires and reconnect with wirenuts or crimps {non watertight} slide the pvc pipe over the splice area leaving about 4" past the splice on both sides,using great stuff foam sealant put the straw in one end of the pipe and tape it to seal it to the pipe, fill the pipe with the sealant until it come out the other side of the pipe,let it dry 10 minutes and cover with dirt. This splice is very cheap and has NEVER failed me
