    Do you have a local ordinance that says No?

    Is it subject to damage?

    A hazardous area?

    I can here.

    No, I've always seen Ridgid, that's why I asked. I couldn't find anything that says otherwise.
    It's odd to me that they would quote a job with Ridgid when you can run PVC

    Have you checked the PoCo requirements? They would have a say on this since it's their side of the meter.

    Is it their side of the meter? I assumed so when you said "Service wire coming underground" in the OP.

    Probably not. Fire pump conductors are treated as service conductors no matter what.

    OP said pump room, and the 1st thing that popped into my mind was something like a carwash, a fire pump never crossed my mind.
