Conduit help!!!!!

When the conduit goes through the metal roof (between the load center and the weatherhead), how do you keep it from leaking?

You need to use a roof jack designed for your type of metal roofing. You might want consult a roofing supply that handles your type of metal roofing.

Edit: See Chandlers reply. Post #4.

If you buy your weather head as a kit it should come with the flashing as well. Ray's picture is pretty good but the ones we use have a rubber gasket where the flashing meet the pipe. You will also need to slip the top (high side of the roof) under your shingles.

But he is dealing with a metal roof, Scott. #3 MASTER FLASH RED SILICONE PIPE FLASHING, SQUARE-BASE may help in knowing what you need. Most metal roofing supply houses carry the jacks. You just form them around the raised areas if they are in the way.
