Low Voltage Wiring

Culligan Water came out to my house giving me an estimate for a new water conditioner. They wanted to drill through the concrete block exterior wall and feed a low voltage line that would be attached to a transformer plugged into a recepticle inside the house. This line would feed the controller of the water conditioner. Doesn't seem right to me. He claims it is allowed by Florida Code. I'm seriously considering having an electrician come out and install a proper exterior outlet. Besides, I don't want an unsightly transformer hanging on my bedroom wall. Is that the proper way to run a low voltage line?

Low voltage is relatively safe, which is why there are not many electrical codes that cover it. So their plan is probably legal.

Nonetheless, I understand your reluctance. Having an outside electrical receptacle installed with a "in-use" cover for the plug is a more elegant solution.
