Just did a repair last week where they ran #14 for everything but the controller was an a utility room so they ran conduit with multi strand down through the slab and outside the room. and used water resistant connectors and buried them and then the hose bib leaks. Go figure the system was intermittent, not the first time ive seen it not the last time. DBRY's rule
