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

Is this 120V circuit? Or 240V circuit? What kind of conduit are you using? PVC?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
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.
