When I get rich and can custom order items and have someone do the install, this project will be fifth on my list (it follows new roof, gutters, paint, and windows). Okay, I’d probably put new floors and furniture ahead of it, too. Still this is an amazing fibre optic sidewalk.
“You may be interested to know that we encased the harness in a hosepipe as you suggested, up to a central distribution point (the standard hosepipe is slightly narrow but it was easy to cut down it and them re-bind it with waterproof tape. We then encased each fibre (singles, twos and a few threes) in electrical earth sheathing, which protected the fibres from the hosepipe end until they entered holes drilled in the slabs (diameter of the sheathing) and also held them vertical in the slab holes.”
