Resourceful Siddhidata Kulam Electric Work Continues

With the main conduit piping of the new electrical system all now safe and sound beneath the ground, the next stage it to actually get the new electrical cables through all the pipes.

Normally you will have to pay a contractor $1,000’s of dollars for this part of the operation. But, since it does not require a professional license just to put electrical cables through pipes, the Siddhidata Kulam has decided to do this work themselves and save a bundle for the Aadheenam construction budget.

First they used scrap metal from our property and created this big holder for four giant spools of huge thick copper wires that weight altogether nearly a ton.

Yoginathaswami design this and Sadhaka Tejadevanatha welded it all together with footings that will slide onto the forks of the Caterpillar Skid Steer.

Next a light weight cord is tied to a plastic bag that is blown up and inserted into one end of the pipe that goes some 200 yards from this point back to the new intake panel wall. Down inside this whole a vacuum cleaner is attached to this end of the pipe and it sucks the bag all the way through the pipe. Then the light cord is used to pull a heavier rope back through the pipe all the way out to the other end where the spools of wire will be attached.

Them we will use the our small track hoe to be the mule that will pull all four cables through the conduit. Today was all set up day. Tomorrow the fun begins and the team will do the actual feeding of cables.
