My question is what is the acceptable transition we can use from the underground schedule 40 pvc coming up to the 12" run to the entry at the hot tub? We will get the pvc conduit to come up as close to the brick as possible.
Can I use a LB at ground level to connect the 40 to LFNC to the hot tub? LB at ground level to another straight piece of 40? Just use a sched 40 90 degree corner? Or can I transition to LFNC under ground from the schedule 40 and just bring it up to the hot tub?
The big debate seems to be over the interpretation of "exposed to physical damage."
I have also reached out to my city inspectors, but with COVID their response times are either very long to non-existent.
I'm in California if that makes a difference.
