May I use an all Dielectric Loose Tube cable and bury it directly in the dirt to keep my costs down?

February 4, 2020

Superior Essex recommends that an armored cable is used in direct bury and underground applications. Armored cables provide superior protection against the rigors of direct burial during installation as well as the long-term hazards such as rodents, rock and the occasional fence or mailbox post. In addition, dielectric cables are not locatable post-installation unless a tone wire is installed along with the cable. This could make the cable more susceptible to excavation damage in the proximity.
