How do you get a power cable through a hose?

You should probably use electrical conduit approved for this purpose, and not hose - anything else is unsafe and will fail. To get the cable through the conduit: Find a styrofoam ball, ping-pong ball, or similar very lightweight ball just slightly smaller than the inside diameter of the conduit. Push the end of a piece of lightweight nylon twine (longer than your conduit) through the ball and tie it in a knot. On one end of the conduit, attach the hose of a shop-vac - and at the other end, drop in your ball. The vacuum will suck the ball and twine through the conduit. Retrieve the ball. Then use the twine to pull your line through the conduit (if small wire), or to pull a length of stronger rope or cable through before attaching it your wire.
