Why is it not advised to use the heat cable on a pvc condensate drain pipe?

Can the heat cable be used as a short-term solution to defrost a pipe. I.e. only turn on the cable when the pipe is freezing. Thanks.
Asked by: customer01
Hi customer01 - the pipe must have water in it at all times so the cable doesn't overheat and melt your pipe. Drain pipes will not have water in them all the time. Phone Frost King 1 800 562-6587 M-F 8 am - 5 pm for more information.

Is the cable OK to use on the PVC drain pipe from a condensate pump reservoir. The water flow is intermittent.

Asked by: Blackrock41
This cable will not heat the water in a pipe, even when the water doesn't flow for long periods. It isn't a water heater, it is more like a trickle heater that comes on and off by the thermostat, and it does NOT measure or monitor the temperature of the water, it monitors ambient temperature where the thermostat is located in the cord. It would likely never damage an empty pipe but the manufacturer will certainly not recommend using it for that purpose because that makes them liable, and we all know anything can happen. They will only state what they can regulate and be responsible for. Think of it as an electric blanket, it doesn't get hotter and hotter until the water heats up or boils, it only heats enough to keep it from freezing.

After ran & secured the cable paralle to the pipe, can we wrap it with the foam insulation tube ?

Asked by: Barry
I prefer the foam rubber tubes over fiberglass wrap, but I use a size larger than the pipe and I use the ones for refrigerant lines because the can handle more heat, aren't as cellular and are made for exterior use.

6 ft. Electric Water Pipe Heat Cable is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works Used this to wrap a back flow for the sprinklers system during a late spring freeze. I did over lay it with a sheet and then a shower curtain to stop snow from getting to the heat tape and cord. Worked very well. Keep in mind it has a thermostat so it will only heat bellow freezing
