tails in individual conduits to meter?

Recommended Posts

Meter tails need to be moved but they need to be run in conduit for mechanical protection through a cavity. Due to route they will take they can't be fitted in a single conduit as it's too big to fit past a steel. Is there any reason that the individual tails couldn't each be run in 20mm conduit (which will clear obstruction) and just have 3 gland nuts either end? There is loads of room to do that and it would make it simple.

If steel conduit then no because of risk of eddy currents. 

If plastic then I don’t see what the conduit is offering. 

Can you run in SWA as it sounds like meter tails are not ideal here?

On a related point, even passing meter tails through separate holes in a steel cabinet can cause issues. If you have to do that, put a hacksaw cut between the 2 holes.
