Can you use the same fittings/connectors for liquid tight(metal inside) and non-metallic liquid tight. Also, is corrugated tubing rated for outdoor use? I want to run fiber optic/belden wire through it. I know liquid tight is better , but im looking for a cheaper option

I do not believe any of the ENT (IPEX or other brands) are outdoor (UV) rated. http://www.ipexelectrical.com/Content/Products/Product.aspx?IsDownload=true&FileId=455

I would suggest a NM Liquidtight conduit (ex. CARLON) with appropriate, listed, fittings. Most of these systems are rated for outdoor use. If you need more crush resistance, then select a metallic Liquidtight conduit (LFMC). Its more expensive, but will also do the job.

Hey great answer thanks. I have plenty of metallic liquid tight and fittings. If i get the nm liquid tight can i use the same fittings as the metallic?

Only if they are listed for such! The Mfr.s box label should be the first place to check. There are plenty of liquidtight fittings which will work on both Type-B NM and LFMC conduits.

The fittings are not interchangeable.
