nm-b 6/3 in conduit


Hi folks
I buried 2in from my panel to the garage 60ft away. I have 100ft of nm-b 6/3 . Can I strip the conductors out of the sheath and pull it through the conduit? I know this may sound stupid but lately I getting better at stupid.
Thanks Mike

No. It is illegal. You can NOT strip the jacket from any romex style cable and put it in conduit. It's jacket can only be striped inside of junction boxes.

Also you can not use nm-b in a wet location, and buried conduit is a wet location.

Not legally anyways.

The wire inside of NM looks an awful lot like thwn, but it's not marked as such. It would also be kind of coiled up after you unwrapped it.

Good job on the 2" conduit though

2 inch? You have some room in there, makes for an easier pull.

I would pull thwn wire.
