emt raintight fittings


It's been awhile since I've done any outside conduit work. I was at the Depot and also Lowes today. They both had two different compression connectors. One was listed as concrete tight which looks like the old connectors that I have used in the past. The other one was a shiny steel type that is fatter at the nut. I looked on the Arlington Industries web site and they list some of theirs as rain and concrete tight. Are all compression type connectors suitable for outdoor/rain conditions?

Unforetally no not all are listed for outdoor useage you have to check the package to see what they are listed for.

Not too long ago they change the design a little on compression fitting to make sure it will meet the NEC or CEC codes so check the package to make sure.

Merci.
Marc
