Pigtailing or splicing of wiring in a home is acceptable and safe as long as it is done per National Electrical Code. The code requires that electrical wire splicing or pigtailing as you refer to it must be done with a junction box that is accessible--that means splicing is not allowed in walls where the splice is covered up by drywall....It is really only allowed in the attic or underneath the house or in the basement if the wiring runs below the house. Why do you ask? Post back up and let us help you further.
