    Guys going to get free wall insulation done in the next few weeks courtesy of BG for free. Already got some cables running from loft to tv room on ground floor. Want to future proof the run by adding a conduit duct, can anyone recommend a suitable duct/ conduit which is flexible and will fit in a cavity. Did a search and mostly found the corrugated stuff. Cheers

    Most if not all flexible conduit is currugated - its what makes the construction flexible.
    I know a few places that sell the plastic flexible conduit / copex in 50m coils fairly cheap.
    Diameter wise it seems to come in 25mm & 32mm.
    Its solid conduit also some places offer split conduit bit thats easier for cables to get pushed out.
    The solid conduit can be glanded at each end for a neat install too.
    I can let you know the place online if needed.

    Failing that electrical conduit that is straight or plumming pipes, but you will need a straight run down the cavity for that.
