I've read/heard that pull boxes are required every 360 degrees of bend in conduit. For the life of me I can't find it in the code.

What section is that in?

I'm not challenging the need - just want to find the code reference.

Thx - Rob

The word "conduit" is very general. There are many different types of conduit. You have to look up the specific type of conduit you are refering to.

For example,

emt: 362.26
imc: 342.26
rmc: 344.26
rnc: 352.26

Got it. I'd been looking in the general wiring sections, not the sections specific to the various types of conduit.

Thanks - Rob
