Always be sure there are NO pin holes or torn places in the heat shrink. I strongly advise adding a non-conductive sealant in the splice (designed for the voltage/current of the wires). Any "leakage" of electricity will cause troubles in the future and will result in corrosion of the splice. I also advise having some way to find the splice(s) in the future. Some people place short pieces of pvc pipe next to the splices and a flush sprinkler casing (or similar item) as we tend to forget. That's why pirates made treasure maps.
