My suppliers don't stock them. The state electrical inspector didn't know anything about them until he talked to the head guy.Are you guys using them?? does a 2" connector cost you 36.oo dollars like it will me if I order them Should I just use PVC .
Probably going to get a bunch of arguments here, but I dont like EMT in wet locations. You end up with a bad batch of conduit, and it starts rusting on you etc, things look like crap soon after you are done. I prefer PVC, and with the price of metals these day,it may work out cheaper, even with the bonding conductor, and some specs call for bonding conductor even with EMT.

I like PVC but it alawys seems to droop in the sun. Wnen I did my screen cage I used EMT so it would look better but I did paint it before and after I put it up. Between that and the galvanizing it seems OK.

I have to run 30 ft done the outside of a building with 2" and 1 1/4". PVC will look like crap in a year although its on the back side of building and shaded by trees. The price of 36 dollars is for 1- 2" conn, made by Steel city.
