  • Will this be ran in the ground?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
144 or 288
P&C conduit or muti-gard w/ innerducts 3 or 4
above ground or along fence or under dock.

15,000 Linear Feet - Multi-Gard - 9,750$

Per Foot - 288 count fiber- 3.11$

Per Foot - 144 count fiber - 2.23$

I saw you mentioned you'll be doing the work yourself so i didn't add labor costs, just standard material. Of course you'll have mounting material and such that you'll need to account for.

As prices vary depending on who you get it from, shipping, ect. this is the best estimate i can give you. Hope this helps you out! If it did, please don't forget to rate as it helps out a lot!

is this correct
15,000 Linear Feet - Multi-Gard - 9,750$
is that total cost or are you saying per foot?
Expert:  Andy B replied 11 months ago.
Total cost for the multi-gard.
Per foot would roughly be 1.50 $
Per stick (10' sticks) roughly 6.50 $
Expert:  Andy B replied 11 months ago.
Sorry ment to say per stick would be roughly 15$ not 6.50$
