Pull elbow behind drywall?
I know junction boxes must be accessible... does this apply to pull elbows in conduit?

I need to run from a junction box at the floor to my service panel, but the junction box is too offset for a straight run and too close to use long radius elbows... This is a 1-1/4" conduit run. A pull elbow would work just right, but it is in an area that would be enclosed...

Unless it is counted as being accessible if I use a panel which can be unscrewed for covering it?

At this point I guess I'm asking because I'm curious but I'm going to go up in size to 1-1/2" PVC so I can use a straight tube I already have and get the elbows with funds from returning the EMT pipe and fittings. Funds are cut off so buying more EMT is out.

access panel would be required

Was at Home Depot the other day and they have a plastic access panel that is about 4" by 6", perfect for you application. They were at the water heater accessory area.
