Conduits are tubings used to enclose and protect electrical wires that supply power to a home or a building. Conduits may either be flexible or rigid and are made out of various materials. Many homeowners who prefer to go the DIY route with the installation of wires in their home prefer using a flexible conduit over metal and plastic conduits because this type of conduit eliminates the need for bending. However, when it comes to protection, a rigid conduit will fare better than a flexible conduit.

If you are installing wires in your home and if you are considering the use of flexible conduits, it is worthwhile to know the different types you can choose from.

Flexible metallic tubings  are probably the most popular flexible conduits among DIYers because these can be easily bent and can pass through walls effortlessly. However, due to their lack of waterproof protecting jackets, they are not suitable for areas which are prone to moisture.

Liquid tight flexible metal conduits are used to cover cables which need both flexibility and protection from moisture. This conduit has a waterproof jacket which means that it can be used in a variety of applications, including those that involve exposure to hazardous areas.
