How to Install an Outdoor Outlet | The Home Depot


  1. im confused am i supposed to show this video to my "licensed electrician"?

  2. "Hire an electrician and do not do this yourself. Now, here's how to do it yourself."

  3. Looks like these guys might running Romex through exterior conduit. Note that Romex is not wet-rated and and per the NEC, should not be run through exterior conduit. The theory is that condensation could cause the paper insulation wrapped around the ground wire in Romex to retain moisture and potentially cause a short. Wet-rated THHN is approved by the NEC and should be used. Note that it IS ok to run Romex through an exterior wall directly to a wet-rated box. Hope that helps someone!
