I'm planning on running all my wires through the 
cheap, corrugated black 6" tubing.  At first it looks 
like the pipe might be less than ideal (all the 
corrugations appear to be snag "magnets").  However, 
if I make certain that the leading edge of the wire 
bundle is rounded over well, I don't see it being much 
of a problem (famous last words) to pull it through.  
Has anyone had experience with this black stuff?

An obvious plus: creating gentle bends in the pipe as 
it is installed will be easier than with the "hard 

I plan to bury a second empty one in the same trench 
for future use.
