Yep, sure does get tangled...I think I mentioned this before on TT...
Install some smaller thinned-walled PVC pipe inside the larger
to run various cable in.  The thin-walled is cheap, comes in 10 or
20 foor lenghts.  it's called SDR-26 and it is used for underground
sprinkler systems, etc.  I found a large supply of it at the local Ace
Hardware store.

A pull rope can be fished in with a rubber ball (etc) and a shop
vacuum cleaner.
