Best Answer

It depends on the voltage and if it is a branch ciriut or a service. If it is under 30 v olts 6 inches will work. If it is 120 volt branch circiut it needs to be on a GFI, on a 20a breaker and either in a condiut or uf cable to be 12 in . If it is not on a gfi , and it is over 20 a then it must be 18 in. Regardless the wire must be in condiut or be of UF cable to make it water tight.
