    After cutting the flexible conduit to length then putting the wire to be used in it - Is there not something they make that protects the wire from that raw cut edge of the conduit..? (a protective plastic type bushing insert,a grommet,maybe a fitting that has a protective type insert etc..) The romex cable to be used is 10/2 (hooking up a water heater)
    Much appreciated to all!

    Surely you cleaned up all the rough edges :eek:

    348.28 Trimming.
    All cut ends shall be trimmed or otherwise finished to remove rough edges, except where fittings that thread into the convolutions are used.

    He is using it to protect a cable from damage so the rules for installing the flex do not apply.

    If he wanted he could use a peice of water hose. It is being installed simply for protection.
