Not at this time - you need to either go with MC cable, or use an unapproved cable like the type we sell.  It is not listed for in-wall use, so use at your own risk.  But it is heavy duty 14 gauge shielded cable.  There is a particular method we use when using MC cable.  We could go over that with you and a few other really good pointers before you start doing work.  I would highly recommend getting a phone session with us before you get further along in the process.

I can help you avoid a lot of wasted time and poorly-designed systems.  There is stuff we do that I've not heard anyone else do :)

Thank you for school a speedy response.  I will definitely consult first!  What does an unapproved cable mean, really--that an electrician may not be able to use it?  And how does the price and quality of electric field and/or magnetic field reduction compare to MC cable?  In other words, is the 'use at your own risk' worth it?  :)  Thank you!!


There are code requirements and also certification, such as UL listing, requirements.  They apply to the type of cable AND how it is being used.  I haven't run pricing comparisons to be honest.  You might also take into consideration if you may sell the house, insurance requirements, and other important things.  Using non-approved cabling "at your own risk" as it most definitely would be also may come with huge problems for resale and insurance.  That's why we do not and cannot accept liability for what people do, and that's why we have such a strong hold harmless and indemnity agreement attached to all sales.

That being said, we haven't had any customers have any problems with cabling.  In nearly 11 years, we have had a few manufacturing defects on Stetzerizer and other meters/etc from other companies.  There have never been any injuries at all, and never any property damage worth mentioning besides a small mark or broken product that the manufacturer covered.  We are all about health and safety goes hand-in-hand with health.  It's a shame the rest of the industry is worried ONLY about safety and liability and not about long-term health :(
