Approximately 152.4 meters. 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.

Yes, this can be done when properly identifying the 2nd neutral. If these circuits are in conduit, you will need to make sure they don't exceed the maximum conduit fill.

Most of my outlets do not have a ground, I am wanting to properly upgrade my home wiring will this wire allow that?

Asked by Okami March 11, 2019
4
Answers

No, this is a single conductor wire used in conduit with other conductors. You need to install a ground wire (green) or replace the branch wiring in your home with proper Romax grounded cable and make sure your service (meter) is properly grounded with a driven ground rod and a cold water pipe connection too. I advise you use a licensed electrician to do the work. Also if your home insurance company finds out you don't have adequate electrical wiring, they could cancel your insurance or deny a claim should one arise.

Asked by sparky January 14, 2019

Answer

I made up a mock order and selected 3 different colors and the bill showed no discount. I then deleted 2 of the colors and changed the order to show 3 of the same color and the bill then showed a discount. So if this little test is correct, it looks like you need to buy a multiple of three of the same color.

Can this be used outside for lighting?
