Re: conduit

Generally speaking 12" except for an underground SE cable and our utility company requires 48" for that.

Perhaps it may be a regional thing ---- 18 inches around here.

Oops, not a regional thing just a mistype. My bad:o 18" unless it's ridged metal conduit then you only need 6" unless you are going under driveways or streets.

I think that number as a regional thing as well. :cool:
NEC 300.5{A} does break it down: All locations not specified.
Rigid metal or IMC conduit 6"
PVC or other raceways 18"
Great minds think alike.:D
PS. Concrete 2" & concrete 4", as well as concrete driveways change everything.

Not sure what the routing of the conduit has to do with your problem because you don't say what the problem is.
