There is no distance requirement as many people believe. I always use an EGC with sealtight. Check NEC article 350 for specifics.

The lenght limit usually applies to comercial uses.....as in how from say a motor to the conduit. The typical seems to be 3' or less. A lot has to do with what they call the 'unsupported' length.

One of the few limits concerns hot tubs.
