code question on liquid tight conduit

Quick question.

I'm moving my electric dryer (220v) and need to move the plug about 10 feet from where its at. Am I up to code using 1/2 inch liquid tight conduit inside the house exposed on the wall? The reason I ask is that I've already got all the conduit, fittings, and #10 thhn single wires to do the job left over from a heat pump install and I don't really want to open up the wall to do it.

Thanks!

Here in the States you can use liquid tite cable in that length as long as it's properly supported.
I'm not sure if the same applies in the CES (Canadian code).

Thanks for the fast reply PJ. If it was outside I wouldn't even ask. I don't recall seeing it used inside but it just makes sense to me it should be okay.

It can be used inside just as well as outside. It doesn't have to be used in a wet area.
In commercial and industrial applications it's used extensively inside.

Is the dryer 240 only or 120/240. If 120/240 you probably couldn't extend it in the U.S. if it was 3-wire because you can't usually extend a circuit that doesn't meet current code.
