FWIW, I had lots of water in a buried conduit for several months (without
knowing it). Something prompted me to pull a rag through and it came out
soaked. I connected a shopvac, in reverse mode, and blew a fountain of
water out the far end of the conduit. I had three coax runs, one relay
control (5 wires), and one SteppIR control cable in the conduit. AFAIK,
everything was working correctly despite of the water. I just did not like
the idea of the cables lying in water indefinitely. (Also, I could barely
pull a rag through the 2" conduit and could not remove or add another
cable.) So I dug it up and replaced it with 4" conduit, with a better
slope, drain holes, etc, etc.
Did I need to do anything? I don't know........maybe all would have worked
correctly indefinitely sitting in water in the conduit.
