I'm stuck looking for a route from a basement to an attic for a 100A subpanel. I'd rather not run conduit up the outside. Can I run SER next to the vent stack? That would provide the simplest, cheapest, easiest way to do it, but you know how that usually ends up...

sorry, forgot to mention that it's a 100yr old house (new 200A in basement) and the stack looks like cast iron.

Sweet. Is this allowed in the code or just not addressed? I've been looking for a while now.

I don't think you'll find many references to plumbing in the NEC.

The code is not a design manual. It does not address every possible scenario of an installation that might come up. Would you normaly not run wiring near plumbing?

Normally, I'd just run it around plumbing, but this is a bit more than a 20A circuit just crossing a pipe's path. Stranger things happen, I was just making sure, never did it or saw it before. I guess I won't have to say that after this.

All persons on this site need to have a sense of humor or they don't stick around. Speaking of problems with running wires near stacks etc., I was trying to thread conduit on a location in Nebraska where I had to run a cord accross a set of RR tracks and the threader was running real slow and overheating till I propped the cord up with a 2x4 and got it away from the RR tracks.
