Thread: sealant

    Smile sealant

    When exiting a small drilled hole in the stucco of a house for rear entry into an outlet box, must that small hole be filled with foam or some such material even though I intend to apply caulking around the entire box where it meets the wall? Thanx as always.

    Don't think the electrical code requires it, but some other code (fire, energy, etc) may. If it was a raceway (conduit) it should be sealed if one end is inside and the other is outside.

    What kind of cable is this (power, low voltage,...)? Is there a cable clamp on the box to secure it?
