My actual waistline above the hip is usually 33 or 33.5 inches, so I ordered 34's. They measured over 36" out of the package, even shrinking an inch they would have been huge on me.

Can I bend PVC conduit with wires inside?

I have a conduit right in the way of a drain I have to install, it's already wired and everything is installed.

Can I safely hit it with a heat gun to bend it a few inches out of the way?

We add like a cup of Shark Grip to up to 5 gallons of sealer when we spray it, it doesn't take much.

I rarely use it though, most customers don't like the sugar cookie look.

If the slab is flat and in otherwise good condition, I would ask him to polish it or find someone that can. Still work, but not as much work as jackhammering and doing it again.

You have to wait longer, then get a splashy with the water bucket to prevent peeling.

I have two pair of those still folded up in my closet, with pads in them.

Aside from shrinking on me after I washed them a few times, they are just way too heavy.
