Thread: Insulation color

  1. #1

    Default 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.

    My answers are based mostly on the ICC codes. Advice given is my personal opinion and every person performing work should acquire a permit from his/her jurisdiction and get the work inspected. My opinions are not directions to follow for DIYs or professionals

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