We've just bought a new house which has a summer house at the bottom of
the garden about 25 metres from the main house building. The previous
occupants kindly installed a power supply to this building using 2.5
T&E buried in two inches of soil and clipped to the fence posts... I
won't even tell you what was done at the consumer unit end!
Needless to say, I intend on immediately ripping this out and
installing SWA in the correct manner - however, I also need to run some
cat5, alarm cable and a satellite feed down there.
Can someone suggest what the best kind of ducting to use for this job
would be? Also, if the said ducting is providing full mechanical
protection of the cable, would that mean that I could run the power
cable through the duct and avoid the need for a separate SWA cable?
