As for performance... it did work... eventually. We spent a lot of time jiggling things around before the cable actually started working. I can't tell you if it was a contact point in the plug, in the thermostat module, or in the end-cap at the other end. I can tell that it took several tries of adjusting the position of the cable before it started working. That doesn't inspire confidence. (And yes, I know it should have been working because I have an air temp sensor in place, as well as spot checks with an IR gun.) When it did start working, it did keep the pipe nice and toasty between 38 and 48 F. Note that the tape does not continuously run; it cycles on and off based on temperature demand.
Do yourself a favor and get a weather sensor with outdoor probe and stick that under the insulation to keep track of the pipe temperature. Or get a Kill-A-Watt energy monitor ( P3 P4400 Kill A Watt Electricity Usage Monitor ) so you know if the cable is working. If the thermostat activates overnight, you won't be there, but the Kill-A-Watt will be there to measure the usage.
I do wish the thermostat module was not flat, hard plastic. It would be better if it were concave-rounded to fit to a pipe more closely; even better if it were soft so you could mold it to the pipe surface and form a better thermal contact point.
Several years ago, I heard water running on a Sunday afternoon and found that the exposed water valve split open outside in -5 degree temperatures. Water was shooting 10 feet across my yard. What a mess.. Won't happen again.
