Wish i had the pictures.

Told to run 3/4 pvc between 2 boxes for a network cable and leave a string in the pipe.

Network guys drilled hole in box, Tie wrapped to the pipe 200' then drilled another hole in the second box to enter it. They said they don't pull wire in pipe as that's a electricians job.

Well at first glance that looks sorta hack

But maybe a licensed electrician did it? Because he didn't have 3/prong receptacle on his truck and driving to SH would have been expensive?
