Electrical Conduit Installation

Electrical Question from Ron about Installing Electrical Conduit
Background: Ron, a Handyman from Los Angeles, CA
Question: Can I use schedule 40 PVC conduit coming from underground, exposed for 4 feet outside the wall, then up the wall inside for about 15 feet to an inside subpanel? Or do I need to use schedule 80 PVC?
Can I use PVC (40) pipe to connect two (inside the house) subpanels?
Thanks for your electrical question Ron.
This depends on the location of the conduit. If it is in a location that is vulnerable to traffic or other hazards then schedule 40 pvc may not be permitted. Another factor would be the size of the conduit. EMT may be an option up to the point of the underground pvc portion. I would have to know more about this project to assist you further.
