It’s time to “hard pipe” my table saw. I want to run 4 in thin wall pvc piping in the overhead. It looks like 30 ft
will get me up, and over to the area where I’ll drop down to the saw. I’ve been told that static electricity is a
problem with pvc, and that I should run a wire inside and outside the piping to carry any charge to ground.
My shop is a metal building. The structure itself is grounded. I will be using metal straps to secure the pvc
to the steel rafters of the building. Would not those straps carry any charge to ground?
I’d really like some help on this. I’m not much of an electrician.
