Hi. Thanks for posting your question on JustAnswer...

Is this 120V circuit? Or 240V circuit? What kind of conduit are you using? PVC?

Initialy 110, but will wire capability for 220. Will be in pvc.
Thank you. It should be a minimum of 18" deep to meet code. This is from section 300.5 of the National Electric Code (NEC) if you're interested.
