Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does what it is supposed to Got this for a couple of nights where the low was going to in the the teens. Wrapped the outside spigots with them and plugged into an extension cord. Went and checked later and they operating as advertised and gently warming the pipes. January 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heater cord The store was out of stock with heating tape. This was a good alternative. Used it to un-freeze our water lines in our garage after the subzero cold snaps we have been having. Has work well keeping them from freezing again. Like the thermostat on it so the cord only operates when the temperature goes below 30 degrees. February 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Priced right and works. Right size and power output for my application. Keeps the pressure sensor on my well from freezing up. February 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Yes, it works. It's a little confusing how this works from the packaging, but the orange box contains a thermostat that turns on the heater below about 40F (instructions inside). You can press the black part against the pipe to get a better temperature reading, but not really necessary. I had an outside water conditioner, and no matter how much insulation I had, I couldn't keep it from freezing some nights. But this did the trick. January 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Great ! I purchased this to replace one that was 20+ years old that had stopped working. I'm very happy with the life I got out of the old one ! Frost King rocks !!! January 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Straight forward product Worked great for my application. Needed to keep some wine casks from freezing in an unheated building. Mounted it under a piece of aluminum and set the casks on top blanketed with insulation. Kept them at 38-40 degrees when the building would vary from 6 to 40 degrees and was well below freezing for over 4 weeks straight. Just what I needed. January 14, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Heat Tape The product is OK but not what I thought it would be. pipe. Wanted a heat tape that would wrap around an outside pipe. August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It helps prevent pipes from freezing The wahter pipe heat cable worked very well in preventing my pipes from freezing. It was easy to install and when the weather get below 0 I just plug it in. January 29, 2014
