Questions about running Wiring to pump-house for 24V DC water pump and 110V AC in same conduit
I finally got my ~80 foot trench dug last week to go and the #2 AL wire is ready to be cut off the spool, to length.
The 2" PVC conduit is 80 feet to the well. The well is 10 feet deep.
The rep in the supply house suggested it might be good to try to 'twist the 2 wires as they are DC carriers, but I think this might be a futile exercise due to being #2AWG over 80 feet...
I also want to have a 110V AC line in the same conduit if possible. Ac will be used in the small pump-house for lights and small tools.
I have 225 feet of 8 gauge wire salvaged from replacing a water pump at our in town house tha I will use....
I have searched and cannot find any reasons that mixing DC and is no AC carriers is not acceptable. Have also tried using some of the Conduit fill apps and it looks like I may have excess space.
Are there any issues I am missing to negate running 2 different voltages in one conduit?
