Hmmm...makes sense about the surface area, but what about the wire catching on the corrugations?

Well, normal procedure is to run a string through the pipe to use to pull the wire through.

How do you pull the string? Tie one end around a plastic bag or wad of strong paper. Shove it in one end of the pipe. Suck paper through from other end with a vacuum. ;-)
