So the garden hose cable is not a good idea?

From panels to charger and from charger to the pw.

Thanks in advance

Garden hose is not approved for use as electrical conduit. You can pick up 10ft sections of PVC electrical conduit designed for this purpose for cheaper than the garden hose at most hardware stores.

You can also pick up garden variety hose on street corners, but I still prefer conduit.

I thought about pvc, but i thought it would be static, that's why i wanted in garden hose first and that one in pvc pipes to segregate the positive and negative.
So each hose in a different pvc pipe....
At work i will be very friendly to the electricians(again).

Thanks!

This is why you use "conduit", not PVC. Conduit is the grey stuff. It is less prone to static electricity. Tho not sure how. You can use regular pvc though, as well. If you are worried about static electricity, just run a thin bare copper strand outside the pipe firmly taping it to the pipe every so often.

However, the only reason static electricity would build up is if something is "rubbing" on it. I highly doubt those electric cables inside are getting that frisky with the pipe Tongue

It would be quite irritating to be said person.
That would be an awesome april fools joke, replacing the cable on someone's welder with solid core wire.

Marine or automotive battery cable can be decent & there's lots of auto-electrical places.
The marine stuff is usually tinned wires so less corrosion issues - but your batteries should be somewhere dry & low humidity anyway.....
