FT-4 In New Outdoor Conduit ??

I have a question do u guys normally run Ft-4 in outdoor conduit to feed portable ,, Digital Tel. Feed?? Or is there a chance water will get in and bleed thru insulation ?? One place may be used for 5 years until new building is built. ?? Thks

RE: FT-4 In New Outdoor Conduit ??

Pipes will not bleed but the it may crack or joints fail in time due to frost line.

Give the client options maybe stating that the greased filled cable is the proper option.

Where possible, use black cable as while will crack due to the weather conditions when used outside.
