Can this product be used to keep an inside metal chicken water can from freezing?
Asked by: CalendarGirl
I have quail (aprox 45) and use this product to freeze protect the supply water lines for my birds. I use a 35gal poly tank that gravity feeds a drip watering system that is heat traced and insulated. For your use you could use this product but you will need to heat trace & insulate the vessel plus use a GFCI. The birds like to pick at the insulation so keep that in mind. I would recommend using an immersion heater for the open pale to work or go to a closed drip watering system.

Can this heat cable be used on the hot water pipe?

Can this heat cable be used on the hot water pipe?
Asked by: Foghat
I use it on the main pipe that brings water into my home. The sensor (the orange part with the black button) senses the cold and activates once it gets to a certain temp. so it won't work on a pipe that is already heated. Hope that helps.

6 ft. Electric Water Pipe Heat Cable is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 101.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The "Frost King" 6ft. Electric Water Pipe Heat Cable is an excellent piece of equipment to use... The "Frost King" 6ft. Electric Water Pipe Heat Cable is an excellent piece of equipment to use on exposed water pipes especially in crawl spaces under your house or building. It has a built in thermostat that cuts on to keep your water lines from freezing and the Plug end has a solid grounded connection. Installation is easy and quick with excellent directions on the package This Electric Water Pipe Heat Cable when installed lends itself to become not only a great safety device to avoid frozen pipes but also gives you "peace of mind" knowing your pipes that have this Frost king product installed are protected. As always when working beneath a house or other structure always work with another person as a safety backup. I would highly recommend this product.

I say 'believe' because it really does not feel warm to the touch, but it is not as cold as the pipe to which it is attached. My guess is that if it was not providing some heat, it would be as cold as the pipe. Note that I did not cover the heat cable and pipe with insulation as instructed. I was curious to see how much heat the cable produced, so I left it uncovered so I could touch it. I subtracted 1 star because I am a disappointed I cannot positively feel warmth from the cable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from it turns on I'll echo the other comments in that the product "works" in the sense that it turns on and provides some warmth... how much warmth and how effective it will be is an open question... I tend to think if the heat tape and pipes are wrapped well with the proper isulation it will likely get the job done... ... ... as an aside, I have to use a 12-gauge extenstion cord to get it powered... they "recommend" only plugging direct into a GFCI outlet but upon deeper digging FrostKing does say a 10 or 12 gauge outdoor extension chord into a GFCI is acceptable... How many people would have a GFCI outlet already located in the most likely places this heat tape would be neeeded? (Crawl spaces, main water pipe intakes, etc). I dont't think many... if the product works well this winter I'll get a GFCI installed where needed for this product.

This product cannot be used inside a wall so I will be returning it. It looks like a well-made product but I find it hard to believe there is much of an application for it due to the way it is made and the restrictions for its use.
