Testing coaxial cable run
Posted 19 February 2006 - 07:27 PM
My question: I looked at the end of the conduit and it is full of water (yes I should have plugged it and my wife along time ago). I can blow the water out, but how do I test the integrtiy of the cable runs before I seal the pipe? It was high quality oudoor cable but for all I know it has been underwater for 3 years!

The only test I can think of for the coax would be with a volt/ohm meter to test for any damaged insulation.

Other than that, the best test is to just go ahead and use it. If it doesn't work you can always pull new coax. That's the beauty of conduit.
