My home has no outdoor power outlets at this time. I want to run underground electricity to my boat dock for lighting and marine battery charging. Is this something a novice (with some help!) can do? I do not want to run extenion cords to the dock. I want light switches.I already have an underground 2 inch plastic hose running from my house to the lake. I would like to run the power line inside PVC pipe through this hose. I also want to run a seperate PVC pipe through the same hose for water. It is roughly 100 feet from my house to the dock. Any help is greatly appreciated. I have searched for hours on the internet and found little useful information. Thanks in advance for any help.

Please take this advice and stop what you are doing and call the local electrical inspector, and think about hiring a licensed electrician!

Post this question here too to see what others say from the industry:

Hi guys,

I truly appreciate your input. I am hanging up my plans to do it myself. I am in the process of contacting local electricians for estimates. Thanks again, you may have prevented someting really bad from happening.
