chevrolux: The 20mm duct is rather flexible and can be easily swept around 90 degree corners without the need for a formed bends.

What is a safe minimum radius for the 20mm duct?

As in bending the 20mm? If you've bent it enough to kink it, you've bent it too much. Otherwise, you should be fine.

Yes, bending the 20mm conduit. Would like to know the bending radius for the conduit so that I can dig the trench ready for Chorus to lay the 20mm conduit from my boundary to my house.

You can bend the duct to almost that of the formed bend.

Just dig your trench a decent width and a 90 degree corner wont be a big deal. Otherwise, just eat away at the corner a bit.

I think you might be overthinking it a bit, it's just a trench. If the boys get their and can't sweep the dict around, just dig out a touch more.

Thanks chevrolux....
I can't dig a trench in a B line from my boundary to where the ETP will go. I have to work my trench up to a small concrete path and a stormwater pipe.
