Similarly, you may ask, do electrical wires need to be in conduit?
Code requires that romex be installed in aconduit. Conduit also protects your wires fromexposed surfaces such as rough bricks in a basement. PVCconduit is easy to cut and to install and will make yourwire installation simpler. Aluminum conduit is usefulin electrical applications because it is highlyconductive.
Subsequently, question is, how do I test if a wire is live? You can use either a current tester or a voltage meterto determine if an electrical cable is hot. Keep inmind that it is possible for more than one wire to belive. Touch the tip of the meter or tester to the screwwhere the wires are attached. Go slowly and keep your eyesand ears open.
