Extra wires to bury with the pex tubing?

Extra wires to bury with the pex tubing?

PostBy: biggreen1 On: Wed Jul 02, 2008 8:59 pm

I read through the old posts about adding extra wires in the pipe that will have the pex tubing for my garage installed boiler. Any recommendations on what all to put in there? LsFarm, What did you decide on with respect to a remote pyrometer? Thanks all.

I found a wireless BBQ thermometer for $59 that does the job... but I would bury a telephone cable, that has at least three pairs [six wires]. This can come in handy.. if you think you might want to use 115v. then add a 12-2 or 14-2 romex too..

If you are installing in conduit an alternative is to put a stong string in so that you can pull new wire in the future if necessary.

If you put your circulator pump on the boiler in the garage you will need control wires. Do as Bob suggests add a conduit, 1/2 in. minimum.

Or even 1 1/2" conduit. You will not be sorry for using oversize conduit but you will be if you use undersized conduit.
