Outbuilding Electricity supply
I’m going to be building a shed out back of my house. I want to get electricity to the site before I get the crushed stone that I’m going to put under the foundation.
I read the quick article in Fine Homebuilding about getting electricity to the outbuilding – Underground rated cable with PVC conduit when it enters or exits the ground, buried 1 foot deep.
I’m a little concerned about just burying the cable – does anybody put this stuff in PVC conduit all the way through? Do I have to worry about water getting in the conduit? Flexible or rigid?
The article showed some kind of bushing on the end of the 90 degree bend of the conduit as it exits underground – do I really need this? Didn’t see any bushings in my big box store.
Any replies greatly appreciated,
