I'm not an electrician, but would two 45's be better to run than a 90? It'd take more of an arc, but that's the idea for an easier pull.

I reran the wire from my garage to my wellhouse the other day/night. Tried to pull it back from inside the garage...pull...pull...pull. Dang, wasn't coming. So, I got serious and got my come along and wire grabber and hooked it up to one of my ceiling joists.

The joists began to creak and splinter. Whoa. So I gave up. I later found out, while grubbing around under the deck, that the wire had come from the wellhouse out of a pipe and had been stapled to the deck...it went 90 degrees from there to inside the garage.

Note: The reason I had to replace the wire was that the flat, 4/5 wire cable they used had gotten hung up on a metal 90 and nicked the insulation...over the years it finally shorted out. I replaced it w/underground wire.
