My basement has a couple Ethernet and coax cables (thin black and white cables) running from the basement to the attic. The opening also has a gas line, white PVC drain line from the attic HVAC, HVAC power cable (thick black cable), and a power line (yellow cable).
I was thinking about buying this 2 inch PVC conduit to run the Ethernet and coax cables through this opening. I can't fit a 10 foot PVC pipe in my car, so I'm planning on cutting it down to about six feet in the store. The conduit wouldn't run all the way from the basement to the attic, but it would at least clear this opening and separate the Ethernet and coax cables from the other lines. The opening in the attic is at an angle from this opening in the basement (not a straight shot).
Is there a better way to do this? Should I get flexible conduit instead? Or should I just forget about the conduit since I can't run it all the way to the attic.
Problems I'm trying to solve
- Separating the Ethernet cables from the power cables to avoid network interference
- Make it easier to run new network and coax cable in the future
- Prepare this opening for air sealing in the future
