    Default Plumbing crossing electrical conduit in basement ceiling

    I'm refinishing my basement and need to move some of the copper pipes to get more headroom. In some places, I have electrical wires running through galvanized pipe conduit. Where the existing plumbing crosses the conduit, I notice that the copper pipe goes underneath the electrical conduit.

    If I were to move the copper water pipes to go over the electrical conduit, would this be a problem? The only reason I can think of why I shouldn't do this is if the pipe ever sprung a leak, it could drip on the electrical conduit.

    Is it okay to move the water pipe, or should I leave it alone?
