I am finishing off a corner of my basement and I am doing as much as I can myself. I am going to be ready to put in the wall outlets soon, however I had been told that in a bacement that they need to be 3 feet off the floor incase there is a flood. I was later told 4 feet, and a student at my college said 42 inches. I have the NEC 2005 here and I was reading in section 210.8 I think it was...all I could find was 18 inches, and not more than 6 feet apart. Also the book only talks about 15 and 20 wire, I was told to get the yellow 12 wire, is that ok for a basement? One last thing. I had to move a porslen celeing light out of the way of a door I installed. I want to move it to a permenent spot at the bottom of the stairs, however the flexable conduit running it is not long enough to reach where I want to move it too, can I add (splice) another peace to it?
