    Hi. I am doing some electrical wiring under my van and want to enclose some cables in split flexible conduit. Any ideas where I can get hold of cut lengths? Being a sparkie myself I know I can buy whole drums of unsplit from a wholesaler but I only need about 5 metres ! Any info. much appreciated.
    Cheers Paul.

    I asked in Maplin and they suggested Poundland. Sure enough they had it, but I can't remember what lenghts it came in. Least expensive but very cheap. (If you know what I mean). Worked for me though, doing similar job under the M/H.

    Hi Paul,

    I've seen something like at our local fish and pond supplies. Looks about 15mm dia; or is this too big?
