Customer 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 on VERTICAL water pipes?

My water pipes come out of the cement floor of my unheated garage vertically; they are only about one foot in height (then the washing machine and laundry tub hoses attach at the top of these pipes). So is it ok to use it on the vertical pipes? I'll probably have excess cable too so do I just double it up?
Asked by: Eileen
Yup. I did. Used foil tape to hold mine to vertical 2 inch gas line

30 ft. Automatic Electric Heat Cable Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 30.
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 5 out of 5 by from Works in gutters too! Contrary to what the Home Depot employees will tell you, this item can be used in a gutter. The manufacturer confirms this on the Home Depot Q&A section. It works well to eliminate ice dams in gutters. I only plug the cable in when needed and has lasted all winter.

The instructions require you to roll out the cord and secure it with either tape or zip tie it to the pipe. What I found to be a little confusing in the moment was that the user is directed to position the thermostat in just right the position. This last part really pushed me to quit. I'd say if you have the patience to roll out the cord, secure it and position the thermostat in just the right place, then I believe this product will serve you well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needed better info on label Thing works great, but the 'not for use on hoses' part should've been shown on the visible section of the insert, not inside where I didn't see it till after I purchased it for my water supply hose! But, yes, it heats like a champ!

The instructions were inside the packaging, so I wasn't able to tell until I got home that it specifically says not to be used on outflow pipes. So no, not too happy about it.

It kept our pipes from freezing after a week of 16 degrees which is cold for here. I have used these in the past and they have lasted for several years.

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.

This worked perfect on wrapping our pipes during the freeze a couple of weeks ago. My pipes froze the night before, then we applied this, and the next morning I had water, no frozen pipes. Very easy to use.
