We will wedge a couple pvc pipes perpendicular in the box for the conductors and splices to rest on. This will keep the splices above the standard waterline inside the box. The Junction box is an approved box and the scotchcast splice kits we ordered are approved for submersion. It is pretty grey but our planned method of installation meets this code as far as I can tell.

Scared the crap out of us every time.
Must have been a conservative dolphin, clearly a liberal one would have been defiantly loud and boisterous!

You had the perfect opportunity to use the word "blowhole" and you squandered it.
