I like the idea of using the 'smurf tube' (I think that's what it was called).

Just a note; if we are talking about the same tubing, the blue corrugated stuff, my builder installed one from my attic, to my basement.

My BIL, an electrician, took one look and ripped it out; and replaced it with a 1 1/2 inch PVC pipe. He stated, and I understood his point, that the corrugation made it sometimes difficult to run multiple wires through...I've subsequently added two lines using the tube, and the cable slid in like a dream.
