Product Description

Size: 18-Feet

Product Description

Temperature-controlled cable runs straight along pipe and valves, held in place by application tape and plugs into grounded electrical outlet. Keeps water flowing down to -380. For odd lengths of pipe over 3/4 inches in diameter, we recommend two separate cables on opposite sides of the pipe with up to 3 feet of overrun at center of pipe run. Metal pipe requires 1/2-inch fiberglass insulation around cable. For plastic pipe, its recommended wrapping pipe with aluminum foil before cable installation. The traditional resistance cable produces a fixed amount of heat based on the electrical line feed. It comes with a built-in thermostat that switches the flow of electricity on and off based on temperature. Cable installs fast and easy. Each package contains grounded plug, built in thermostat and instructions. Cable has weather resistant PVC outer jacket and inner insulation. Keeps water flowing down to 40 F.

I have been searching for information about this cable pertaining to what temp it turns itself on, after reading the reviews stating that it doesn't say in the directions. I have found what I was looking for at the manufacturer website. Which states:

The thermostat turns the heating cable on when
exposed to temperatures below 38°F. It will shut the heating
cable off when the pipe has been heated to a temperature of
approximately 45°F.

I found this information from this link. [...]

I hope this helps any who are curious.
I haven't used this product yet, but have purchased it.

I am in Northern Afghanistan and the PVC pipe that supplies the clinic I manage is exposed to the elements. It was covered with insulation but that was not sufficient to keep the water running when it was consistently 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Trying to run a medical and dental clinic without water does not work, especially when we have patients admitted overnight for observation and a need for bathroom facilities. Once the heat tape arrived I had it installed and the water was running almost immediately after installation. We have not had any problems since then. I am very satisfied with the product.

Used this on the water hose for my RV while camping in the snow. Great product. Took 2 people to get it on tight, but did the trick. Other campers' lines were freezing every night, mine stayed nice and warm. Had some extra to wrap around the faucet too. Was a long process - going to keep it on that water hose and make it my "winter hose". Worked fine with a PVC (or rubber - whatever it is called) drinking water hose - didn't melt it or get too hot. Shipping took quite a while but I got it just in time.

I am using this heat tape to keep a standpipe and spigot from freezing outside the horse barn. It must be laid flat on the pipe as opposed to twisting it around the length of the pipe. For a long running pipe, this is the correct unit, but be sure to order the proper length.

Heat tape is a great way to keep your pipes from freezing. It also provides a fast way to burn your house down if you install it improperly. Consumers frequently install the heat tape and then wrap the pipe in fiberglass insulation, which is fine, PROVIDED it doesn't have a paper or cardboard backing. You wouldn't wrap a 60W light bulb in paper backed glass, would you? Use unbacked fiberglass. Don't create hot spots by spiral wrapping the tape. Follow the directions -- buy several rolls of electrical tape to mount it, not duct tape, which often debonds when heated. Grounded, thermostatically controlled heat tape is a lot safer than the old, 2-wire stuff. Install it correctly and you'll avoid frozen pipes AND a visit from the fire department.

I've been using these pipe heaters for years. If they're installed properly they work great.They will last for years if they are unplugged as soon as the danger of freezing pipes passes. .

I have two problems with this item. First of all, it has never once produced any heat. The temps have been below freezing several nights and the cable is not even slightly warm when I check it at night. Additionally, they don't provide enough details/warnings prior to purchasing the item. I was going to get a 3 foot one then I realized the 9 foot one was only a few dollars more. I get the thing home and read the instructions only to realize that there are tons of warnings about using a cable that is longer than the pipe you put it on. MAKE SURE you get one that is the length of your pipe. Apparently doubling the cable or wrapping it around the pipe can cause a fire (not with mine since it wont even heat up).
