    Answer This Question

    A:  The National Electrical Code states the following: 356.12 Uses Not Permitted. LFNC shall not be used as follows: (1) Where subject to physical damage. Being subjected to a spade blow could be considered Physical Damage so we would not recommend for use in your garden to protect the wires. Please also consult NEC Section 300.5 for requirements on burial depth for LFNC.

          A:  LFNC can be used submerged and the PVC housing is resistant to seawater at 20 C (68F). The NEC should be consulted for the specific use intended to ensure proper installation. Here is also a link to our catalog: http://www.afcweb.com/liquid-tuff-conduit/type-lfnc-b/

            A:  You can NOT run any NM cable in conduit. Never Ever!! It is against the NEC code. Check with your local electrical inspector. Use THWN rated wire. As for running in salt water, double check with the manufacturer but I have seen it. Try and keep the connections out of the water if possible, if not, make sure the connectors do not have any metal in them that will rust.

              A:  You can use it, but it is expensive compared to regular PVC or metal conduit. And, not as easy to pull through. The benefit to using this is that it is liquid tight, flexible and can be direct buried as well as used outside.

              by|Jun 28, 2019

                A:  Good morning. While this product can be used for many different electrical applilcations, we always recommend that you check with your local code, inspector or an electrician to make sure you are using this for the correct application so you are following the correct codes.

                  Answer This Question

                  A:  This product cannot be used in any application where compliance to the National Electrical code (NEC®) is required. Legally it cannot be used in any application covered by the NEC since the NEC requires the product to be listed. The UL Listed Types LFMC are listed for direct burial in the US. The Canadian Electrical Code does not permit the product to be direct buried. Thank you

                      A:  Yes, Liquid Tight, Non-Metallic conduit is listed for direct burial. You can verify in the specifications section. I would also double check on the conduit itself that it says some form of Burial, Direct Burial, Dir Bur, etc.. And it needs to be at least 18" deep.
