"Liquid soap is no lubricant:"

From: vortecs10@aol.com

On a past job with a nearing deadline, homeruns needed to be pulled in a commercial building through EMT. This run was excessive and required lubricant. None being available, liquid hand soap was easily available and used. Months later, an extra circuit was needed. For times sake we embarked on using the pipe run to accommodate an extra circuit.The soap dried to a concrete form, forbidden any access to the panel room. Never use any lubricant unless its UL listed also.The existing wires needed to be pulled out also. This was not at all feasible since the pipe run was embedded in concrete slab.
