Best way to fix nicked irrigation wire?


I was digging around the yard in a new house and managed to hit the sprinkler system pipe. It seems I also managed to nick the white wire, which I assume is the common wire.

What is the recommended method to fix? Since the wire is not actually cut, I'd love to use the most non-invasive means possible.

To do it right your going to need a kit like this.

Any Lowes, HD, electrical supply house will have what you need.
Now that the insulation has been cut moisture can get in and corrode the wire.
Just make sure to kill the breaker on that circut before working on it.
