Home Inspection: "A business with illogically high liability, slim profit margins and limited economies of scale. An incredibly diverse, multi-disciplined consulting service, delivered under difficult in-field circumstances, before a hostile audience in an impossibly short time frame, requiring the production of an extraordinarily detailed technical report, almost instantly, without benefit of research facilities or resources." - Alan Carson

You will need a minimum 1-3/4" hole size to accommodate a 1" trade size conduit.

If you are installing PVC conduit, then a 2" hole is required for any couplings to pass through.
