Ever used it? My wife just showed up with about 500' of 3 cell, "locatable" and they were not sure what it was.

I had never seen it but it looks interesting on the internet.

Still not sure what they are going to do with it but it was certainly too expensive looking to throw away (their first impulse).

It is awesome! It provides separate compartments within a large PVC, yet it doesn't take up nearly as much room as traditional innerduct. Zero friction burn to other cables when re-pulling (or pulling-in for the first time. It easily allows separate ducts for three times what solid innerduct would offer. I sure wish that I had invented it.

This does look like pretty nice stuff but I am not sure what they are going to do with it.
This is left over from their fiber adventure I imagine.
I am guessing it isn't cheap

No, it's not cheap at all. The savings is gained by lower shipping costs, ease in handling and increased conduit capacity (especially in congested duct banks). When you consider the fact that the equivalent of three 1" PVC/PE innerducts can be provided by one piece of triple-cell, the single smaller reel size alone makes a huge difference in handling costs. I have not actually installed it yet, but I have been on a project where it was being used. I was quite impressed at the speed and simplicity that surrounds the installation of this product.

I bet there is 250-300' on the spool in the back of her truck and they don't want to see it again. If anyone can figure out how to get it from here make them an offer. I don't want the money, pay the folks who own it.
