    They could have at least used threaded rigid pipe.

    We do some installs like this in the oilfield as far as setting it on blocking instead of trenching it.

    Is it LFNC or LFMC?

    (Then again since you said it was supposed to be for expansion then even LFMC could be problematic.)

    Should not be a problem as there would not be any vehicle traffic once the snow starts

    Sounds like a halloween story to me.......
