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.

One of the sales bullets is that it works on copper or plastic supply lines, but under the specs; Material it states Copper. No mention of Plastic. Will it work on PEX indoor water lines?
Asked by: Patrick
I read about using heat tape on pex lines at both the Zurn and Upanor (two major US pex producers) websites. They both say that using heat tape on their products is acceptable, BUT: 1) The tape must not produce more than 180 degrees MAX, and 2) The tape must be thermostatically controlled. One recommended the use of zip ties to attach the heat tape to the pipe, rather than tape (electricians, duct, etc) the other site was mute, saying consult the heat tape manufacturer.

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.

Large plastic tip prevents it from being threaded along with pipe without enlarging penetrations that pipe passes through. This feature was not visible through packaging. to use this I will have to drill alongside pipes and risk damage in a place where repair would be very difficult.

Every pipe in the house has heat cable on it to prevent freeze damage. Out of the dozen or so Frost King heat cables I've bought, two have failed, resulting in frozen pipes. Not thrilled, but few options.

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.
