Electrical Question from Richard about Installing Underground Wire
Background: Richard, a Homeowner from South Jordan, UT
Question: I would like to run a 110V line from my house (breaker box) to my shed which is about 125 feet away. Is there away to do this without having to trench and bury the line? Is there an electrical cable that can lay on the surface of the ground or a couple of inches deep? Thanks
Thanks for your electrical question Richard. Sorry, but there is no electrical cable that can be installed safely that is covered with just a couple of inches of soil. Please see the link below for Underground Electrical Codes.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
