View Full Version : Insulation color

I found a new 500 foot roll of #10 THHN at an estate sale and got it for next to nothing. Insulation is green color, however I want to use it not only for ground conductor but for hots and neutral. Is it legal/legit/acceptable to use it in that manner provided that I use appropriately colored tape markings at both ends to designate what it's actually doing?

It's not code compliant to re identify this type of wire.

Agree, not acceptable per NEC.

Bummer. But at least I've got a lifetime supply of ground wire. Thanks for helping.

Aparently so did they.
