Basement Electrical- Flexible Conduit?
We are finishing our basement, and it is a new home, with the outside basement walls "formed" to look like brick, we are leaving the outside walls as they are (painted of course). The interior new walls are drywall.

For the walls that are the formed concrete, we'd like to add some outlets. Can we use flexible conduit to run to the enclosed boxes, or do we need to use the rigid conduit? We are in Ohio (don't know if code might be different in other states).

Thank you!

Flexible conduit is ususally limited to 3 ft in alot of areas. Best bet wouuld be to call your village as ask.

Most flexible conduit/tubing can be of unlimited lenght if a ground conductor is run inside. I would not recommend it though. I'd use EMT thinwall conduit or PVC sch80.
