Stranded Cable in Home Wiring - dwg - 11-20-2017

[attachment=5856]

I have metal conduit in my house.  I would like to replace some of the wiring.  Can I use this...it would be a lot easier to pull?
Here is a link to the Home Depot page.

Never seen that before cheaper and easier than pulling from 3 different spools if that's all you need

Mmmmm.... the specs say max amps is 15.  Does this have to be derated for some reason? If you have 20 amp breakers in your old wiring, you may need to drop down to 15.

Thanks all for the responses.

SRV52761  I didn't even notice the specs that said max 15 amps.  I do need it for some 20 amps circuits.  I think though that HomeDepot has it wrong.  The Cerro website (near the bottom of the linked page) says its rated for 20 amps...so I think I am good but thank you for pointing that out.

 If you look at their specs at Home Depot for the 14-3 wire it says 20 amps.    Which is wrong, looks like they swapped the specs with the wire size.   Roly

Some connections for that wire will be different as well.

Why?
(Thanks for any suggestions or things to look out for.)

If you have metal conduit, you can skip the green.  Just get a spool of white and a spool of black.

If your local inspector will allow, Lever Nuts (manufacturer: Wago) makes a nice interface between stranded (even finely) and solid.
