is there something in the code that prohibits having the unprotected line and the protected load from the gfci in the same conduit or flex?

if so then all outdoor gfci's run in flex or pvc have to have an entrance conduit and an exit conduit...

something about that sounds legit...i am not sure where i read it...

any input would be appreciated...

Ground-fault protected conductors can not occupy the same raceways, boxes, or enclosures containing other conductors suppling an underwater luminaire unless one of the conditions 1 through 4 apply, See Section 680.23(f)(3)2002 NEC.
