Re: Fishing Wires Through Conduit
A coworker and I were getting ready to pull some fiber optic line through about 515' of "fresh" conduit. Tied a piece of plastic, a sandwich bag I believe, to a length of regular plastic pull string and sucked it through in about 25-30 seconds, maybe less with the aid of a fairly large shop vac. I had never seen it done before and I was amazed at the speed the string peeled out of the box and how fast I was told over the radio to turn the vacuum off because the plastic and the start of the string had been "swallowed" by the vacuum cleaner on the far end. We didn't install any pull boxes for the string to go through because we had pretty much a straight shot from start to finish.
I was impressed.
