    Hi, I am laying a patio and have a 38mm corrugated conduit going across the ground ready to be covered in scalpings, it's 7-8m long but it doesn't have a pull cord though so I was wondering what's the best way to get cable through it. The cable will only power a small foundation pump. Thanks

    I've got one this morning to put some h07 flex where Mr Landscaper has kindly installed a corrugated drain pipe for me to use. I was dreading the draw wire catching on every second ripple etc, but I'll try out Henry and string after watching this :)

    It's that video that inspired my vacuum cleaner suggestion, was just struggling to remember what they put on the end of the string :)

    I can't see how this method will comply with the regulations for buried cables.

    How's he going to keep the string wet then? go on answer that smart Alec:p you do realise Tel you and me are going to get into bother if we keep turning serious threads into a joke. To the OP the reason I asked about voltage was a serious question, as someone has mentioned that your install method may not comply with the Regulations (BS7671)
