Answer by  abdulfathah (79)

Electrical conduits (it be metal (EMT), plastic (PVC), or flexible conduit) have their own maximum number of electrical wires allowed in the conduit. It depends upon the size of the conduit and the size of the wires. For 1/2" PVC- we can fill 10 no of #14 wires,7 no of #12 wires and 4 no of #10 wires.

There is an amount of wires you can fit in certain size pipe. Also you are not to exceed 3 current carrying conductors in any size pipe without stepping down the amps the wire size can hold. Nec book is your best bet.
