I’m in chch and want to upgrade to fibre. When our house was built telecom/sparky laided green conduit to the side wall of the house at the same time I had a second conduit laid by the sparky with sweeping bends and ran this to where the outside edge of our to be laid concrete would end. The assumption I made was get some conduit under the concrete so that fibre could be run into the same entry point as telecom and no concrete would need to be cut . In the wall I had micro duct run back to a network cabinet .. Seemed logical. Fibre has now been laid down out street and we have a point about 7 meters away from our house down the fence line. Last weekend I dug a channel for enable to be able to put some conduit in the ground . I exposed the end of the 25mm conduit I had laid under the conference so they could connect to it. This week enable arrived . They came with what looked like red conduit like the stuff sticking out of the ground fairly stiff stuff , apparently they tried to pass this through the 25mm conduit I had laid and failed and decided to leave saying maybe the bends were too sharp. They left the red stuff for me to lay if I wanted to try.
I thought they would lay 25mm solid conduit to the demarc point at the front of the house and connect that to the 25mm conduit I laid.. Then pass athinner lighter more flexible micro duct along the inside of it. Is it normal for the more solid red tubing to be passed down 25mm conduit?
Anyone got any pictures of what they normally do? I’ve seen installs along fence lines where they used a thinner conduit, sometimes black. Was my technician confused or lazy?
