Beside this, can you build over buried power lines?
Building Over Utility Lines. If a landline - phone, electricity, gas, or water, crosses your property you will most probably not be able to build a house over the line. Homes require stable and deep foundations and the authorities will not allow you to build.
can you concrete over gas pipes? You can bury pipes in concrete as long as they're protected against corrosion, denso tape will be fine for the water pipes. The gas pipe should be factory coated (yellow) and have no joins or fittings underground, keeping the gas pipe in a duct would be handy, but gas pipes can be buried in concrete too.
People also ask, can you bury electric cable in concrete?
1 Answer. I have not seen cable of any sort in direct contact with concrete. If you are using direct bury cable, after you get out from the edge of the concrete, I would get it down 18" if possible, or keep it in the conduit to protect it from casual digging.
Can Romex be embedded in concrete?
