Installing outdoor electrical extension cable, plug and receptable (80 foot away)

Installing outdoor electrical extension cable, plug and receptable (80 foot away)

DISCLAIMER:
I forgot to mention, make sure you use GFCI plugs/outlets!

This guide is NOT for everybody. Use and take whatever fits your need. When not comfortable hire professional electrician. And if you live within local, state, or national electrical code ordinance please check your compliance with that your local code first.

I am using SOOW cable buried right next to the home foundation and side of my pool where no digging will take place. Make sure you use GFCI and outdoor rated plugs (my home has built-in GFCI at my circuit breaker). Again, watch and use at your own risk.

This video will show you how I installed an outdoor electrical receptacle (electrical plug) (outdoor wall plug) behind my pool using an outdoor electrical cover and extending an electrical plug from 80 foot away.

DISCLAIMER: Do at your own risk! I am not responsible for any damage and/or injury.

In this video I am using SOOW cable and my circuit break has GFCI protection built-in!

This outdoor plug is completely weatherproof with its flip-down cover.

Check out my previous video which explains how I assembled the plug into the 2-gang receptacle assembly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCF2W_ku7ro

    Did you purchase a trencher to lay the line? Thanks

    Do you have a video show how we can run it from the source

  4. Be E on November 18, 2022 at 9:37 pm

    So basically you took an extension cord type spliced them on one outlet hardwired to the outdoor box and the other end wired to a plug? 🤔 im thinking about doing this

    Thanks for sharing

    Moronic.

  7. Jose Angel Saavedra on November 18, 2022 at 9:45 pm

    Nice video but don’t you have to use gfci outlets for outdoors??? Or wet areas

  8. InnovativIT GA on November 18, 2022 at 9:47 pm

    Thanks for showing this how to outdoor electrical cable extension. Just make sure the plugs should be GFCI outlets!

    What size wire did you run?

  11. Shadi2 on November 18, 2022 at 9:50 pm

    My only concern is the wire not being in conduit until it’s at a safe depth. it’s too easy for a future owner to dig in that spot and have their tool cut into the wire. Non-Metallic safe depth is 18 inches, Metal Conduit is 6".

  12. Strawberry on November 18, 2022 at 9:51 pm

    Nice. What did you use to run wire underground?

  13. Henry Pratt on November 18, 2022 at 9:52 pm

    Why did you leave the insulation on when connecting the two outlets? Underground with no conduit? Those outlets should be GFCI. You need to take a class in electrical wiring. Or pay up and hire an electrician.

    I need that exact box, where can I get one?

  15. Jon McCauley on November 18, 2022 at 9:54 pm

    Highly illegal, against NEC codes, and would not recommend, but glad it worked out for you… Just make sure to rip it all out before selling your house.

  16. Christopher Rotondo on November 18, 2022 at 9:56 pm

    Is the wire 18” deep ?

  17. Randall Davis on November 18, 2022 at 9:57 pm

    U know what u are going at that the wrong way why are u hooking that double box up like that it is a same way u could have did your hook up for the future don’t do another video on running a extra power box sorry my men just telling it like I see it later

  18. pensive69 on November 18, 2022 at 9:58 pm

    Interesting and thank you. You install the outlets then the wires.
    Many others connect the wires then install the outlets.
    And as others mentioned you need a GFCI somewhere in the power
    circuit to the install box since those are exterior and not GFCI.
    Your video was well shot. It could use more dialog and explanation.

    Good video and useful

  20. Michael Moffatt on November 18, 2022 at 10:00 pm

    No sound sucks.

  21. Max Cavazos on November 18, 2022 at 10:04 pm

    Very unsafe in my opinion

  22. cougiphone on November 18, 2022 at 10:05 pm

    This work is not to code. Do not do this. These outlets can be Extremely dangerous. This video should be taken down by Youtube.

  23. Zeus WWR on November 18, 2022 at 10:07 pm

    I almost never comment on other people’s work…but this one frightens me a bit.

  24. Todd Hobert on November 18, 2022 at 10:10 pm

    This is not to code in so many ways.

  25. GypsyMoFoJoe on November 18, 2022 at 10:12 pm

    Great video documented evidence for your home owner insurer to deny a claim!!!

  26. thomas gregory on November 18, 2022 at 10:14 pm

    Good

  27. T W on November 18, 2022 at 10:15 pm

    Can’t run flexible cord like that my guy..soow is for damp locations, but you got it in a wet location Table400.4. Also can’t be subject to physical damage where it comes out of the ground over the concrete into the pvc. 400.12(7). Sorry! I’m not sure but you might’ve violated 400.12 (1) too lol.
