    Can I organize sump pump wires all together or do they need space between

    hi. Wanting to zip tie together the power cord for the main sump pump and the wiring (switch, pump, charger) for the backup pump. Can I do this or do they need to be separated? Thought I read somewhere you shouldn’t put them all together but can’t verify that. Thx.
