The final authority in any case is your local authority having
jurisdiction. If your local inspector says this is what you need or
must do, then that is what you need or must do.

Does this make any sense?
Run 3/8" HDPE tube in outdoor underground trench.
Blow in indoor rated zipcord fiber optic cable.
Pump "waterblocking gel" into HDPE tube after you are
done to protect cable.
What is that waterblocking gel that is in
outdoor cables? Can you buy it by the gallon?
Is it related, and how, to the "encapsulant" that
you put in outdoor splice chambers?
Is it costly enough to make this scheme not interesting
on a cost per foot basis?
Why do it?
If you have lots of relatively short outdoor runs the
cost of splicing pigtails onto outdoor gel filled cables
might be more than this scheme.
