The Mcdonalds here, guys were there Monday, 2 1" sleeves left for future coming up out of a recessed 84CCt panel. One is full to max and somebody put a 3C10 Teck, the whole cable without connector in the other sleeve basically rendering it useless for any other wires without disconnecting it and running it properly into a JB on top of the pipe.
Whatever happened to 2 2" pipes up to a splitter in the ceiling?
