Liquidtite non metallic conduit in crawlspace


Wondering if I can use this type of 3/4" conduit for run from junction box mounted on inside cinderblock wall of 4' crawlspace to utility room about 20' for well pump conductors. Got a lot of Ibeams, pillers, etc in way so would be must easier to install due to bends and in a wet location. (3-90 degree bends) I could mount conduit using Ibeam hangers and 2 hole metal straps in concrete piller. But is this type conduit code for this application?

It is OK by code to do but it will look like a hot mess unless you strap it a million places.

You can use it as planned as long as you utilize the proper connectors and strap it every three feet. As someone else pointed out, this conduit tends to sag over time. Also be careful with your bends. It is not that easy to pull wires long distance in this type of conduit and too many curves and bends make it harder.
