    12" depth is sufficient according to the NEC if you meet 2 criteria….  you have GFI circuit breakers before you exit the home, the circuits are 20 AMP max, and you use UF-B wire rated for direct burial.  No conduit or duct is required.

    By the time they’ve hit the caution tape it is too late! This is just typical and commonly accepted substandard American construction. We desperately need higher standards in this horrible country.

    In the UK we would put electric cable in conduit before burying it in the garden ….

    Not really a "how to" vid.

    Looks like the absolute minimum depth with no protection like conduit pipe.I trenched 24" just to be on the safe side so my tiller can’t reach it.

    Please show how to connect the plug from the fountain to the end of the electrical wire that was buried in this video.

    it’s like showing a flying plan in the sky and saying you just learned how to fly a plane 😂😂😂

    electrical wire needs to be inside of PVC conduit buried at least 18 inches deep

  18. ioiom63 on December 21, 2020 at 10:44 pm

    Not familiar with the NEC, but if this were Canada, the wire would need to be a minimum of 24" deep, or 18" if in PVC.

    This guy looks like he belongs on the cover of a comic book 👻

    but once you hit the caution yellow tape then your most certainly going to hit the live wire
