Polaris connectors underground


I'm sorry Randell I still do not see where you said the first trench had been covered. My reply was only to get some degree of direction in what your doing. I'm sorry the way things went caused you to became so defensive. You did however throw a bit of a curve ball when you said you were going to supply other habitable occupancies from a sub feed out of an lighting and appliance branch circuit panelboard serving your home. It appears you are set on your mission at hand so I will bow out. Good Luck.

Defensive??? I'm not sure what just happened here.

I was just defending(and not to you) the fact that maybe I can't afford to hire a contractor to do the work. And I'm just proud of the fact that I've achieved some goals and done it without being rich. I just worked hard and have been frugal and do a lot of things for myself.

Again, sorry for any confusion. I never said it was from panel board serving my home. It is from a Main panel with pass-through lugs. This main panel services my home, my workshop and the guest cottages.

The main is a 200 Amp service panel. I feed the 200 amp panel at my home through the pass through lugs. The two other subs will be fed through a 70 amp breaker and a 100 amp breaker from the Main.

120 ft. of 1/0 cable was run underground with the original intent of servicing two detached cabins. However, plans changed and so did the location of the sub-panel. It moved 13 ft. Unfortunately, the trench had been mostly filled in and a road over the line was resurfaced. It became necessary to splice the additional cable to the line. I was only trying to learn the best way to do this.

As you can discern from the DIY Chatroom, people tend to disagree, which for someone like me can get confusing. I also seek wisdom from electricians in my community. Sometimes this information conflicts with the suggestions of others in this forum. I'm not trying to be contentious, just thoroughly informed.
