I am putting in a few new outlets in an enclosed patio, running a new circuit through the attic using 12-2. I would like to go from the panel to the first outlet, then to the second and then the 3rd. The run would be via the attic and the cable would just be exposed on the vertical run from the attic down to the outlet.
I would like to run this exposed section, about a 10 ft vertical run per outlet, in conduit. I would prefer to not have to run multiple conduits per box and was hoping I could use 3/4" LT or PVC - again just for the vertical section from the attic to the outlet. It isn't a wet or damp location, I just want it protected from any possible accidents.
Would this be acceptable to pull two 12-2 cable per 3/4" conduit at least for the first 2 outlets or do I need to put in a junction box along the way and then just run a 1/2" down to the outlet? I'd really prefer not to do this.
I know I shouldn't put cable in conduit for the full run, which I am not doing. This is just for exposure protection and I am not clear what the best practices are.
