$100/100 is $1 a foot, not $10 a foot.

Buck a foot isn't too bad. I pay around $.65 a foot, but I get it at contractor pricing.

Smurf tube!

It doesn't have a pull string in it though... What is the application?

20 cents a foot. 1/2 OD nylon. Automotive type stuff. Not sure if this is adequate for your purpose.

Price is high, but depends how much you need.

How much do you need?

ETA:

That stuff you linked to is plenum rated. Do you need plenum rating? You may find cheaper, but let me know how much you need.

Nope, it's going from one rack to another that's ~4 feet apart inside of a closet in my house.

4-5 feet would work, but i'd like to have a 20' section that i can cut up.

For home use they sell the blue version at the big-box hardware stores. I think in 50ft coils.

For such a short run, what's wrong with solid PVC conduit? Get a 10ft piece for cheap.

1G. Yes, i know copper will work. I want fiber, damnit!

Link Posted: 10/29/2013 8:28:28 AM EST
Can you get some tray rated fiber that is already terminated? Last job I did my electricians ran about 600' in a tray without the raceway. Just a thought.
I have used stuff similar to this for boat and car installations but those were all copper. Not sure if it will make much difference with fiber. I'm not sure if you are just trying to protect it or if it is code.

Don't bother with the conduit, just buy a patch cable.

For some reason rodents like the orange tubes. Little bastards.

Time is money. How much is your time worth?

I think I get that stuff for a little less through an electrical supply house locally. It's really great with the pull tape already inside. Just don't let some moron "helper" yank it out before you even get started.

Why bother? Just use bridle rings instead.

Only an idiot would do that. Everyone knows the string is there to pull off the pre-terminated ends.

I can get you a 10ft piece with no pull cord in it if you want. I may have other scrap lengths lying around, but anything at or above 20ft is going to have pull cord, and we normally sell it.

Stay away from the Carlon Resi-Guard, it's slinky-flimsy . Fiber innerduct is more rigid and available at Graybar and Anixter by the foot or stop by an I'll hack you some off.
