( so total 2 lines) if you are running dual, run 2 more, so you would spare line in case of you need to run new lines or cable goes bad. have fun

Overhead's probably the best if you're worried about it being hit down the road. I put in lawn sprinklers for a living (pretty common for me to hit cables, gas lines, electrical , etc.) and if you're burying something, and not burying it deep enough to definitely make it unhittable, I recommend going as shallow as possible. In other words, just tuck it under the grass. That makes it real easy to locate and follow for anyone (such as a sprinkler guy, for instance) who wants to avoid hitting it. Also makes it pretty easy to pull back up should you ever need to. And I figured it just may appeal to that inner sloth of yours.dulzen said:the reason using conduit with direct buriel cable is that, if you have to replace the cable, u can do it very easily. (it's gonna be bitch to pull all that cable back out if it's in the dirt) it is also for extra protection. just for a thought, u can always run in overhead!
