Not sure whats up with the forum (it didnt post the body of the topic) but here's the details.

I was able to run the phone and camera lines 450' through continuous black water line.

I used 65# test fishing line, with a pom pom made out of a plastic sandwich bag (make sure it is small enough to go through your connectors) and pipe snot, thats what the guy at Lowes called it. I tied nylon cord to the end of the fishing line before I used a shop vac to suck the line through took all of 5 mins.

My 79 year old Aunt Violet bundled the 2 wires and an extra pull line (for later use) together with Boy Scout knots 3 just in case (it gets tighter when you pull on it) and then I wrapped 6" of the end with electrical tape, and snotted that too.

I then manually pulled the nylon cord and wires through.

All thats left now is installing the fixtures, OH ALB....................................

That's an awesome idea, and we will be re-installing the power to our barn thanks to an industrious dog, so we can use this tip here in rainy OR.
