  4. Soory about the delay in sending totals I was swamped at work. Pm's sent to all requesting lights. Still 200 boxesleft.
  5. I have several 70 ct. clear minis for sale. 50 cents a box plus shipping. Bought them to do a display and got involed in another large project instead. Priced them cheap to get them out of the basement. Will do Paypal, money order. I have a bunch.
  6. The company I work for charges about $96hr for 1 truck/1 man service call plus parts. Most don't figure in is the cost of parts. We won't use $15 gfci recp. from HD / lowes we use a $42 spec grade gfci. Have had way to many return trips with cheap gfci's. Depending on the job and LJA (I.E. romex/pipe) rules it could be a 3 to 8 hour job. We are a nation wide contractor:D
  7. In the pictures posted, thecontrollers and channel recp were hard piped and wired, that would make them a permanent installation.
  8. His was a permanent installation so it would have to follow code. LOR panels do not act as overcurrent protection so the wire would have to be sized #12 if feed with 20 amps or #14 if feed with 15 Amps. With the number of conductors in the conduit you would have the derate the current carrying capacity of the wire to about 40% so a #14 would only be good for 7.2 amps. You would have to run a #8 to cover 15 amp with that many wires in the conduit run. I worked for one contractor setting up a park for their yearly light display. We ran over 200,000 feet of conduit for display receptacleswith no more that 3 current carrying conductors per conduit.
  9. Where is the buzz at the main panel or the sub panel?Is the sub panel a main lug or main breaker?

  11. Can't find it in the NEC code book thats why I was asking also called my local suppliers about romex with an orange or yellow wire in it none of them have seen it but will check with to see if it can be custom ordered. I would assume you could be refering to the fact that the outer jacket is color coded to show wire size IE. White #14, Yellow #12, and Orange #10
  12. What part of code requires switch at each entrance to room? And where do you get romex with orange and yellow wire in it? Landscape lighting cable is listed as a Low Voltage Cable. (most being labeled for 30volts and under). Using it in an unlisted manor will make you liable if someone would get shocked or if you have a fire. Also most landscape lighting cable will allow some moisture to penatrate the cable because they don't worry about it shorting to ground be cause the secondary side of the transformer is ungounded.
  13. If you only put one recp. on each circuit it must be rated for the breaker size. IE. 15 amp breaker 15 amp recp., 20 amp breaker 20 amp recp.
  14. Our local inspectors allow a variance on this we can use tape to identify the wires. HAve you ask the inspector if you can just use tape to identify the condutors. You could also strip the insulation off one of the counductors for the ground 100 ft would only take a couple of minutes to do with a sharp knife. .50 cents a ft is prety cheap I might be able to get it for a little less but the shipping cost would eat up any savings. Darren, If they are just throwing out that wire I'd take if you can get it. I just sold some scrap copper @ 1.80 lb bare and insulated was 1.30 lb. A quick way to make money for more lights;)
