    Pigtail question

    Yesterday installed 4 switches in my home all in the same gang. 1x ELV 3 dimmer w/3-way and Pico remote , 1x ELV dimmer, 2x On off light-switch neutral required). There was a big bundle of all the house neutral wires at the back of the electric box, so I bundled all the switch neutral into 1 wire nut + the pig tail then wired the pigtail to the house bundle.

    Everything seems to be great, but I still wanted to confirm if this is an okay practice. There was no other way to do it as that neutral bundle was already really large. Is there a limit to what’s okay to connect with a pigtail, or a limit to the size bundle you can tie onto?

    Thanks in advance,

    That's fine as long as the pigtail connecting the two neutral bundles is the correct size (i.e. 12AWG for 20A circuit or 14AWG for 15A circuit).
