How far can you run 10 gauge wire for 30 amps? 10-gauge wire is usually used for short 30 amp runs. If you plan on going over 150 feet, 8-gauge wire or thicker will be needed.

Can you mix 12 and 10 gauge wire?

While NEC does not hesitate to mix wire sizes, as long as the smallest wire size is large enough, many communities require all wires in the circuit to be the same size. Either they are worried about future mistakes due to confusion, or they are trying to make the inspectors’ job easier.

Registered. Well nmd is rated for damp locations.. There could be an issue if it was fully submerged for a period of time but it sounds like short duration. I worked on a condo when the Bow river overflowed and the Electric room was fully or at least 5′ deep in water for a week.

Can you use 10 AWG on 20amp breaker?
