10 gauge outdoor power line and security camera cable (not coaxial)
 
I am running 500' of 10 gauge power line (for future use) and 600' of security camera cable with 6 pin RJ11 jack and 600' of cat5 cable. I am going to bury. Question is can I run the power line in the same conduit/pvc as the cable lines? If not, can I place power line under conduit/pvc (direct bury)? Also, the security camera cable is two 300' cables connected with a coupler. I would like to place the coupler section inside an outdoor electric box and not bury in ground if this is waterproof enough. My husband wants me to use the 3M Scotchcast 82-A1 Inline Resin Splice kit and bury although my concern is taping and sealing the coupler and jacks enough so that the resin doesn't ruin them when poured into body mold. I have used these on underground electrical splices in the past and did have water get into one after about 3 months of them. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help.

Answer is no, unless the LV (Low Voltage is controlling the higher voltage line. Read the NEC.

Most people on here are DIYer and do not have acess to a code book so they come here to find these type of answers.

Gregzoll,

Thanks for comment. Wasn't sure what NEC is but found out and will read it. Darren: Thanks for diy comment. That is exactly why I came to this forum via another contractors website. Appreciate any help/comment offered.

Run two conduits. If you think you MAY need things in the future, upsize that one.
