In the US underground conduit is consider a WET LOCATION because moisture will condense in the cool conduit.

Thus a wire that is specified for use in WET AREAS must be used.

But the guy is an idiot for adding water to the conduit.

The proper size wire should be used to handle the heat with any water.
