Q:Does this meet code in Los Angeles County when installed in a finished garage?
by|Dec 10, 2017
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  That would depend on what code Los Angeles has adopted and what amendments to adopted code they may have enacted by ordinance. Your proposed installation would meet the NEC, but you should contact your local building office for the correct answer.

A:  If you are buying this product in a Home Depot store in the area you are asking about, most likely it will meet their code. It still has to be installed in accordance with national codes and a qualified electrician can ensure this happens.

    Q:Can I use this in place of EMT conduit over drywall to run 14-2 romex?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Yes, you could do that if you don't mind having a sloppy installation.

    by|May 5, 2023

    A:  That would be dependent upon your local code requirements. NEC article 350.10 supplies allowed Installation specifications. Please be advise many local codes may differ from this such as the city of Chicago requiring steel conduit for protection over insulated conductors.

      A:  It would take a Tiger to harm this conduit.

      A:  it wil help

      by|Mar 11, 2021

        A:  If by extension cable you mean an extension cord, the answer would be no. This product is generally used in short lengths of 3 to 5 feet to make a flexible connection to equipment. You could use it in longer lengths, such as to feed a hot tub, but would have to pull the wires through it.

        Q:Can 12/2 wire fit thru?
        by|Jul 16, 2017

        Answer This Question

        A:  You can not run 12/2 through all the way it's 25 foot length..IMO.. Maybe 8 or 10 feet.. Seems like they don't make many connectors for this flexible stuff either.. The straight Pvc conduit is much better in my opinion.. All kinds of options for turns with the straight conduit, This flexible stuff doesn't connect to straight pvc conduit.. Why the heck they didn't make flexible tubing fit the straight conduit is beyond me..

          A:  Yes, 12/2 wire will fit ok.

          by|Jun 4, 2020

          A:  I was able to comfortably fit 12/2 through it up to a length of approximately 8 feet, it gets pretty difficult to work through beyond that point.

            A:  12/2 W/G NM-B would be an extremely tight fit. Using 12 gauge THHN wire would work better in this situation.

            A:  Yes but 12/2 is Romex and the two types should not be mixed. Pulling individual wires is indicated.

              Q:If mounted on an exterior wall, how far apart can the supports be?
              by|May 1, 2017
              2 Answers
              Answer This Question

              A:  You should ensure that the conduit product is rated for exterior use. National code says supports have to be within 18" of where the conduit terminates to a junction box or device. Flexible conduit is just that, flexible. It has the best appearance when used in short runs. The more supports it has, the better it will look. Max supports for conduits depends on type and local code may dictate what is followed.

              by|May 5, 2023

                A:  To whom it may concern. I hoe this answers your question. According to NEC® 348.30 (FMC), 350.30 (LFMC) Must be supported and secured every 4-1/2 feet or less Must be secured within 12 inches of each termination. Best Regards, Gene Brown 727-403-8392

                          Q:Can this conduit be connected to 1/2" rigid PVC conduit with conventional rigid PVC unions?

                          A:  You would want to check your local electrical code, but this is typically not an approved application from Steel to PVC Conduit and it may require a junction box to make the transition.

                              Q:This is a really dumb question, but I don't know what I'm looking for. The cable company connected our house to a cable box out by the curb by running a plain cable only half buried in the dirt. It is lying on the ground by part of the driveway and to my thinking is a really shoddy piece of work. However, that aside, I want to bury the cable about 6-8 inches deeper but I think it needs a conduit of some sort. Here's the tricky part -- it's attached at both ends so I can't run it through a conduit, I've got to have some sort of conduit I can wrap around it. Do I make any sense whatsoever? I was wondering if this conduit could be cut along the side and then taped shut. It wouldn't be watertight, but it would be better than nothing. Any thoughts?

                              A:  This would be incredibly difficult to cut lengthwise. It might actually be easier to disconnect somewhere or to install a splice in the cable.

                                A:  Hi.....not a dumb question. And, you are correct.... shoddy (another word, actually) performance by your cable provider. Best thing to do is to locate where the cable enters the house and unscrew it from the terminal block. Fish then pull the cable through the conduit from the beginning, and run back into your house. Next best, cut the cable near the house entrance and crimp a splice connection.....tape.
