Hi

Underground line voltage should be a lot deeper(18") then the sprinkler pipe(6-8").

Yes, i was planning on running it 18" under the soil .
I meant more along the lines of a minimum distance it could run parallel to.

In the case of running it in rigid only 6" under it would be the same depth as the sprinklers and was there any special way the lines would need to cross
