    You wont be able to water proof a joint, the join area must be out of the water.

    Ditto on what Alan said

    The Seio you can extend with normal twin flex

    Boyu...do you want to extend from the plug to controller , or controller to pumps....between controller and pumps requires a specific cable which isnt available in SA as far as I know

    wha about the outdoor waterproof cable joints you get at most hardware stores? I'd imagine you could use those?

    Yeah I was about to say the same thing. You can get them in the electrical dept at Builders. I think they are called Electrical Resin Seals. Check them out.
