No experience but likely need to dome it over ~ 5ft sideways from cable so it's not obvious rain will wash it away......at least till AFTER it's inspected............

Quick fix for the concrete,,, a bag of quickrete is just over 2", it'll set up just fine in the bag, or just cover the conduit with sand, dry quickkrete 2 or 3" spray the top then backfill after it sets up a bit to keep from mixing with the dry product. I'tll harden with the moisture from the ground.

Necessity is the mother of invention!

As I was undigging my trench that I layed my raceway cable in for my generator I thought to myself a lot of the dirt I dug up was quite rocky and there is NO WAY I'm going to put all that rock on my new $1,000.00 copper raceway tray cable so what do I use to filter out the rock from the dirt????
I guess if I was into gold panning I would have been good to go but NOT! Got to looking around in the garage and came across this fine Onan part. The screen on a JC scroll housing. Some duct tape, cardboard and I have been good to go most all day. My back hurts tonight though!
