richms: I thought weatherboard cladding was immune to the cavity spacer requirements?
After seeing some shoddy UFB installs both in person lately and on the message boards, I decided I'd do my own conduit installation for a future potential UFB install.
Also, we might be getting the front lawn landscaped, so I thought it was a good idea to get in first.
1. I dug down on the inside of our front fence and located the 20 mm green sweep bend that was installed when the UFB pillar was installed on the road side, outside of our fence.
2. I dug a 500 mm deep trench across our front lawn:
With the intention of hammering this galved steel 2" pipe under the rest of the lawn to meet up with the hole at the fence. What a job! I've whacked the pipe probably hundreds of times to advance it along. At this time, I have about one metre left to hammer it through. Once I've met up with the far end, I'll pull the steel pipe back out and thread green telecommunications conduit though the borehole I've made and solvent bond it to the sweep bend.
3. Here's the steel pipe in the trench before I started hammering it into the ground:
4. At the other end, I had this hole cut in our front path a couple of years ago for a future UFB conduit:
5. I have to re-use the steel pipe to make another bore hole under the rest of the lawn and under the path to meet up with the above hole. After the "fun" I've had whacking that pipe through, I think I'll extend the trench right to the path edge so I have less whacking to do. Digging down to 500 mm in dirt/clay is much easier!
More pics to follow as I progress with this job.
