    I was more than half-expecting some general comments about installing outdoor lights, using flex in plastic conduit!

    Kind Regards, John

    Outside lighting is notifiable.

    As I'm sure you understand, it wasn't actually aesthetics which I had in mind :) Anyway, I see that at least a start of my 'more than half expectation' has now been realised!

    Kind Regards, John

    What's wrong with flex in plastic conduit?

    Are you playing? :) Nothing wrong with flex in plastic conduit, per se, but I'm sure that, in the eyes of at least some (as, indeed, we've now seen confirmation!), it reminds us that we're seemingly talking about an 'outdoor lighting installation'!

    Kind Regards, John

    Plastic conduit does expand and contract and can look unsitely when it sags and distorts, adequate supports are essential
