Yeah just as soon as the sparkys get finished with conduits and say its ready to pour, then it pours down rain. At least that's how our duct banks go.

You let the sparkys finish? I am usually chasing them out of the ditch with red concrete.  :D

Most electrical duct banks (on my jobs anyway) get encased in concrete that is dyed red to protect the conduit and warn any future crews excavating of the electrical duct bank.
