Minimum clearance?


Is there a minimum clearance from the ground a LB connector has to be when turning into the house? I'm running conduit along the bottom edge of the siding,then turning into the house about 1 foot from the landscape. Is this ok?
Thanks for your help!

Make sure you're using listed connectors for outdoor use. IE raintight connectors if you're using EMT.

Minimum clearance?


I'm in Ontario. I have to run wire from the hydro meter outside the garage under concrete floor into the service panel in the mechanical room. In order to get the line low enouch to be under the concrete as required by code the LB fitting outside ends up below grade. What can I do? Is there a different fitting that can be below grade or can I cover the LB fitting in concrete before it enters the house?
Please help asap.

LB can not be buried. Use a long sweep elbow.

Why do people start two threads when they don't like what they are told in another?

If you're referring to me. I posted my question first in someone's elses' thread and then thought I should start a new thread as the other one was quite old. This is my first time using this forum. So, if you're an expert perhaps you can be patient with a newcomer?
