Default Can I "tap" off existing INNERDUCT Corrugated Flexible Conduit?

Have a situation where an existing 1.5" Corrugated Flexible Conduit(non plenum, orange stuff) runs past my space, and if I could "tap into" that, it would save a ton of time & $$, vs running a new 200' conduit.

Is there a method for inserting a "T" into existing conduit of this type, or otherwise tapping into it?

New to the corrugated, so thought I'd ask..

I’ve been working in an ATT phone complex for 20 years. We all just cut it open and pull through. Remember that inner duct is really only a one pull setup because the drag wraps around the first pull. You can try but it might bind up.

Also after the duct is put in we cut in pulling points if needed.

There is no way to delete an account so just leave it be... It will be there just wont be used.
