Oke thanks. I got the advice to use HDPE8 piping for my Water so I thought to use the same for the Electric.

Thanks again, appreciated.

The direct burial cable is very rugged and my electrician friend recommends it over cable in conduit, as conduit will fill with water over time due to condensation or due to missed joints. (If you do use conduit, seal each end and make sure every joint is done correctly.) No problem putting water and electricity in the same trench but make sure you check the recommended burial depths and make sure you put a trace line or tape about a foot above the electrical line so workers in the future might have a bit of warning of the cable being there.

Thanks, I will put them directly next to the wall so there will be no misunderstanding where they are.
