  • EACH pull of wire, from one box to another, cannot have more than 180 degrees of bends TOTAL… Each pull…
  • And the closer you come to that 180 degree MAX, the harder it gets to pull.
  • Place junction boxes where you know that the total number of bends will exceed 180 degrees.
  • Don t be tempted to pull wire before you join lengths of pipe/PVC and glue them together afterwards to bypass that 180 Degree max. You will never be able to replace/remove it in the future because it will act as if you had tied a knot in the wire run…

Good luck!

Although no more than 180 degrees of turns is good advice, the NEC rule is no more than 360 degrees of turns between pull points.
