Conduit shredding outer sheath...tips please.


Usually when you pull wire,you can feel the difference between a snag and the weight of a wire spool.

I don't think there was a snag, but pulling was rough since I forgot pulling lube. When I pulled the wire back out, the outer, clear coating was slinky-ed down like a pushed tube sock in spots. The colored insulation is fine, though.

A 40' run with boxes every 10' should be able to push without any lube.
