Hi,

Just wondering if someone has extended the conduit from the forming shell to the jbox. We're trying to extend conduit to relocate the jbox. Thanks for your help!

:wave: Welcome to TFP!

Someone just moved their box a few days ago. You can not have underground wire splices so can not extend it unless you put in a new fixture with longer wire.

Thanks for the quick response! Will I need to rethread or will a coupling with two direct burial ground clamps with a 8awg to bond the old and new pipe work? Sorry I haven't threaded a pipe before.

I would think you need to extend the brass. The conduit needs to be water tight as well. I just do not know the related building codes.
