Questions & Answers

How many feet of heat tape is required to tightly spiral wind around six feet of 3/4 inch copper tubing/pipe?

Asked by: Bill
Again, this type of Heat Cable is made to work when installed parallel to the pipe--NOT SPIRALLED-- around the pipe.

What are the consequences of using this tape on a hard plastic sewer line?

Asked by: William
Engineer is misreading Frost Kings's answer. Water pipes have water in them that can be heated by the tape to keep it from freezing (Not that is is flowing). A plastic sewer line is typically empty, and, being plastic and a thermal insulator, has little thermal mass to be heated. Without water in the sewer pipe to hold heat, only the strip of pipe along the tape will be warm so sewage will flow through a largely frozen pipe. If the run of the sewer pipe does not drain properly (liquid pools in places), the heat tape might help with those areas.

Can this be used for a sump pump outflow line that is PVC? Thanks!

Can this be used for a sump pump outflow line that is PVC? Thanks!
Asked by: Adam
They aren't made for a pipe that's empty and exposed to weather. If it was me and the pipe was PVC Sch 80 then I would try it since it is heavier than sch 40. If it is exposed then I would wrap it in there insulation and tape it good so no water can get in.

30 ft. Automatic Electric Heat Cable Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Large plastic tip prevents it from being threaded along with... Large plastic tip prevents it from being threaded along with pipe without enlarging penetrations that pipe passes through. This feature was not visible through packaging. to use this I will have to drill alongside pipes and risk damage in a place where repair would be very difficult.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good if restrictions can be accomodated This product is simple and easy to install and use. However, it has a few caviats. The packaging doesn't indicate the watts per foot. You have to calculate that from the total wattage on the UL lable divided by the length of the heating cable. The thermotatic disk must be placed firmly in contact with the pipe being protected from freezing. Also, something you don't find out until you open the package and read the insert, you cannot spiral wrap the pipe with this heating cable. It is meant to be applied in a straight line down the length of the pipe. If your application meets these restrictions, the simplicity of installation and use make this a great way to keep your pipes from freezing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never Heated Up Installed product properly preparing for the cold weather ahead, product didn't seem to heat up at all. Unfortunately I bought it too far ahead and voided the warranty. Not the best product plan for creating any type of return customer base, in my opinion.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Limited application I purchased this to heat the condensation pump that drains to the exterior. Unfortunately, it only turns the heat on when the pipe hits 38 degrees. This will not happen in the interior conditioned area where the thermostat piece is placed, which is at the beginning of the pipe near the outlet, not where the pipe has a freezing problem at the end of the run. I wish the therm had an adjustable location so it could be slid to the area closest to the freezing point of the pipe. Probably good for other applications. Note the ad says works on PVC pipe. There is a caution there in that water must be in those PVC pipes at all times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have Flowing Pipes all winter long Our old pipe cable was very old. It didn't have rubber on the outside it had wire cable. It was corroding. So when I saw this one, I liked that the cable was covered with rubber. This should make it last much longer. I can tell a difference, and the pipes are not freezing. My only complaint is that they didn't have a longer one so I had to go back and by another length one just to cover my pipes under the trailer. I recommend this product if you have pipes that are exposed and in danger of freezing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked better than expected I have 30 feet of exposed PVC pipe in Georgia, last night the pipe froze. I was able to disconnect the pipe from the water main, got the main flowing again. I wrapped the pipe following the directions at 7am and by 3pm the PVC pipe was completely free of ice. I reconnected the PVC pipe to the main and everything flowed perfectly. I think the diameter of the pipe was 3" and it was frozen solid. Also, the HomeDepot website was super helpful. I found the item online at 2am, was at the store by 6am, had product installed by 7am I can only imagine had I installed in preemptively I would have had no problems at all. Highly recommend this item. buy lots of electrical tape to ensure a snug connection to the pipe.
