    If the ends are open, condensation could fill it over time.

    Very True.

    If installed properly it should be sealed on both ends.

    Some installs even pressurize it, but that is a overkill for a home install.
    Theory only works perfect in a vacuum.

    I agree, except that the few dozen I've had to deal with were all full of water.

    Also, the NEC treats outdoor or buried PVC conduit as a "wet location" (not trying to say NEC applies to this situation...).
