How hot do these get and are they water proof?
Asked by: Wes
They just get warm, not very hot. And yes they are made to be waterproof. If plugging in to an exterior plug it needs to be gfi protected.

This is also fantastic for inserting inside of the pipes inside of the home in order to thaw the line. Add a little salt water with this and all lines are thawed in 48 hours.

I used the cable for the first time this weekend and it worked as expected. in harsh winters my dreaded skylights develop ice dams. this product will eliminate them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to install and complete kit (Hope it works!) I am hoping this installation will prevent an ice dam we got last winter, which caused the loss of two ceilings etc. Easy to install and fit onto the roof, seems to be of a good quality. Hope that this winter the investment proves worthwhile. Check out the manufactures web site for detailed instructions and measuring. Comes with a good manual ion how to install also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Had a hard time figuring out where to start. Beginning or end? Measured roof box says I needed 160. Had leftover.
