Welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX would be glad to assist.
have read over the description and see nothing that needs changing at this point. Plan appears to be accurate.
One item, the PVC that is above ground and is in a location that could possibly be damaged, requires schedule 80 and not 40
So it is ok not to bury the conduit that comes out of the spa panel and run it under the deck as long as it is schedule 80?
Sure, do that type install often on wooden decks.
PVC can run in and out of the ground, either way is approved.
Do I need to have an expansion fitting on the pvc where it exits the ground?
Not necessary for any expansion unless you are fastend to the house and deck at the same time, normally out of the ground to a stationary location it is fine without. Should not be much movement in that direction. I would not use one.
Last question. Is schedule 80 available in 1''?
Sure, may have to shop the different supply houses to find the one that carries it, but use it all the time.
If it is a low deck and there is no chance of damaging the conduit with equipment ot by people, the 40 will work. The key is "susceptible to damage" that requires 80
Deck is on a pier system 4 feet off the ground but is surrounded by lattice. Nobody can get under there unless they remove a lattice panel. What do you think? 40 or80?
Sounds like it is out of any possible damage area, I would use the 40
It is really an enclosed area, so no problem with the 40
Ok thanks for the help!
