What has happened is I was planning on runnign 3/4 inch wate rline and
already bought the pipe. After buying the pipe and glueing a few
pieces togther I learned about pex flexable tubing and it sounded like
it would be a good idea for a water line. I cant take this 3/4 pipe
Mabe I should just continue with my origional plan and use the pvc for
water and buy a one inch or larger conduit pvc for my wires?
There are sharp bends in this run so I am not sure even with big
conduit if I would be able to pull wire or not.
I appreciate all your help on this project guys.
I wouldn't use PVC pipe for water service, it tends to fail under
pressure. Used to be legal to use it inside buildings but it's not now.
Apartment I lived in back in the mid 90s had a valve under the sink blow
apart, if I hadn't been around it would have flooded the whole unit in
no time. A few years later they replumbed the entire complex.
Maker sure you lube up your cables. Cat5 and coax are not as slippery
as THHN. The PVC jacket tends to stick to PVC conduit.
Get a bottle of real wire lube, all the other home remedies really
don't work and might hurt the wire.
