When installing outdoor lighting cable, it’s crucial to bury it at the correct depth to ensure safety and longevity. The recommended depth is typically between 6 to 12 inches below the ground surface. However, this can vary depending on local regulations and the type of cable used. Always consult with a professional electrician or refer to the National Electrical Code (NEC) for specific guidelines.
Incorrectly buried cables can lead to potential hazards such as electrical shocks or damage to the cable itself. Therefore, it’s essential to take the necessary precautions during installation. If you’re unsure, consider seeking professional help for your outdoor lighting repair needs.
