Ok for use outdoor use, inside of PVC 2" conduit?

This question is from 6 ft. Pipe Heating Cable with Thermostat

Have 1" poly pipe well line 4' below grade. It is encased in 2" PVC sh 40 for around 6' where it runs upward then a 90 deg.RA into the house. Roughly 3' is above grade and exposed to sub freezing temperatures. So the poly pipe is encased in the PVC conduit and not contacting bare earth until it exits the bottom of the 2" PVC. Where it makes the RA bend into the house, I have a capped T thinking this would be a good location for the thermostat. Any thoughts on this applcation?

Answer: 
We cannot recommend this product for that usage. The heating cable and pipe need to be wrapped in fiberglass insulation, and the pipe must have water in it at all times, per the manufacturer's instructions. Thank you for your interest in our product-- M-D Building Products

I would be running it in a tight space where there is about a 2-3 inch gap from wood and the pipe.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Product instructions should be made available on Web. This product appears to be of good quality and nicely fabricated/assembled. Disappointingly, the cable is not as shown in the provided Web picture, where the photo shows a ribbon style cable. The product delivered was not a ribbon style but rather a common electrical cable similar to an extension cord. I had hoped for ribbon style cable so that mounting (using tape for example) the cable to a larger pipe diameter (2"-3") could be easily accomplished ensuring good heat transfer contact. Also, the instructions were enlightening on how not to use the pipe heating cable. For example, you are advised not to spiral wrap the cable around a pipe nor double up on mating it to both sides of a pipe (for extreme cold conditions). Had I known this I probably would not have ordered this particular product. Nevertheless, the product appears well manufactured and should do the job for most applications. December 8, 2015
