Will this cable fit into 1/2” outdoor conduit?

Asked by DFH June 20, 2020
2
Answers

I used 3/4 conduit, and it wasn't really a tight fit, but I wouldn't use anything smaller. But that's me, you might be fine with 1/2 in.

Do I need to run this in conduit if running on outside wall up to attic?

Asked by Dario April 18, 2020
2
Answers

Although this is made for ground contact, so it can withstand a lot, you should use a conduit on an exposed wall. The elements are harsh and you don't want to take unnecessary chances. It'll look better, more professional that way.

Can you use this indoors as well? They are out of the indoor at my local store.

Its sort of like exterior paint, you can use it inside as well but you can't use interior paint outside. The wire would be fine to use inside, its overkill but there is not an issue code or safety wise.

Can I use this wire for 240v garage heater?

Asked by Jonathan January 17, 2019
3
Answers

It depends on the amp draw and how long of a run you’re doing. If it’s less than 20a and less than 50 feet this will be good. More than that 10/2 would be a better choice.

Is this good for a 220 volt electric heater?

Asked by Scott October 21, 2018

Answers

I would NOT use this, Scott. This is more expensive because it can be buried in the ground (as I did). You could use (less costly) https://www.homedepot.com/p/Southwire-25-ft-12-2-Solid-Romex-SIMpull-CU-NM-B-W-G-Wire-28828221/202316378 BUT If you foresee ever wanting to have 120V available, I suggest 3 wire with ground, such as https://www.homedepot.com/p/Southwire-25-ft-12-3-Solid-Romex-SIMpull-CU-NM-B-W-G-Wire-63947621/202316448 |<----------220--------->| |<-- 120 -->|<-- 120 --| |<-Hot         |                 |<Hot     |<-Netural and safety Ground

Asked by JAN September 12, 2018

Answer

Please consult a local electrician. The above advice is based upon the current edition of the National Electric Code (NEC). Free access to the latest version of the NEC is available online at www.nfpa.org/freeaccess. The NEC and local building codes regulate the types of wire and cable that can be used in specific electrical applications, as well as the manner of installation. Check your local building codes before you start any wiring and cable electrical project and be sure to obtain required permits. When your work is complete, always have it inspected for compliance with local codes to ensure that it has been safely installed.

can this be used to run a power chair lift its 12 volt and i want to run from battery to moter via the undercarriage of car

Asked by dooley2000 September 11, 2018
5
Answers

yes, but why would you want to use house wiring on a car? They make the right kind of wire for that application that is designed for the amperage the power lift will draw. This is solid wire and you should be using braided wire that is designed for the amperage load.

Asked by savannahshowerproblem December 18, 2017

Answers

You need to check codes, esp if you are not suing an electrician. This wire is rated appropriately for burial ground contact, BUT in my state has to be in conduit until it is 24” below ground. Conduit is CHEAP (although digging is hard/expensive). ANother option is THWN wire inside conduit inbsiode generously sized PVC conduit (rigid metal is more impact resistant, but PVC will never rust. So you have options, what I would not do but see far to many DITY do is say “Oh this looks pretty rugged, Ill just bury a few inches undergroundby itself.”

Inexpensive. Great for projects and home/garage use. I've used before to wire up some outlets in my workshop. No issues and easy to work with. And what I like most, it saves a bundle of money. I like to keep a roll on hand.

It's just a good exterior wire, I buried it, and the parts that come out of the ground I put in pvc, just to keep the sunlight off of it. It says it's both water and sun resistant. But I know how the sun is here in Mississippi, so just to be safe I put it in pvc. Altough I measured out what I needed and came up with 47 ft, so I said a 50 ft roll would be perfect. But when doing my pre-start working check, I came up about 6 in short. Which was so problem, I was able to reroute it and come up with about 3 in excess. I'm just wondering which was off, the roll of wire, or my 25 ft tape measure lol..
