Hello,

RE: Exterior Electrical Conduit

I've got a 3/4" hot-tub PVC pipe stub coming out of the ground adjacent to a wall. I would like to make a transition to EMT, but am not sure if this is up to NEC code.

Do they make an exterior PCV to EMT adaptor? Is this even legal according to NEC?

I have a feeling you shouldn't be wiring a hot tub if you don't know what an FA is?

It sounds like it might be a good opportunity to pick up an NEC handbook, it has illustrations and explanations that will help you understand what's required.

FA = Fire Alarm.
FA = Female adapter.

How do I differentiate? I say "fire alarm" when i'm referring to a fire alarm, and "****ing asshole" when referring to a female adapter.

"Hey, apprentice, go to the van and bring back 30 feet of 3/4" PVC, a 90 degree elbow, 8 couplings and a ****ing asshole."
