Can it be used on outside pvc pipe?

Answer

No, heat cables are like indoor extension cords, they cannot be used outdoors where water can get to the cable. The thermostat will not get an accurate reading when outdoors and pipes could still freeze. Never use outdoors in unprotected areas.

It's great. Wished packaging plainly stated ok to use with pex. Hard to contact right cust service reps. Co. had an elaborate installation procedure that was helpful, but only after making couple of calls. Wrap pex with aluminum foil, tape on cable and wrap with insulation and vapor barrier.

Frost king electric heat cable kit
Huge waste of money and extremely frustrating cause if you need this product like I did, it's probably for a not so fun or convenient location. It's worth the $30 loss more than going back in my crawl space in 10 degree weather to Disassemble and try to return this product. either this product is complete junk or I got one with a busted thermostat or something and after the time n effort it took me to wrap and tape it to my lines, nothing has felt more defeating. Do not recommend this product, find something that works

Installed just before 10 degree weather in a external pump house, it did it's job in preventing pipe freezing. Installation is primarily driven by the location. In a cramped below surface pump house there were hard to reach places.
