FAQ's

Q
Can the Heat Cable Kits be used on plastic pipes?
A

The Heat Cable Kits can be used on plastic water pipes only if they are primary supply pipes.

The pipes should have, “Schedule 40,” printed on the side.

Q
How should I secure the Heat Cable Kit to my pipes?
A

You can secure the Heat Cable Kits with just about any type of tape, but stay away from Masking Tape.  Masking Tape doesn’t have the strength to secure the Cable Kit any length  of time, because the adhesive tends to dry out.

While it’s best to use tape, Cable Ties or Zip Ties will work as long as they are not pulled so tight that they cut into the cable.

Q
How many linear feet would 60 feet of Roof cable Provide?
A

When Installing the Roof Cable Kits on your roof edge using the “WWWW” pattern, a good rule of thumb is, for every 20 feet (including the downspout) of roof you plan to cover, you will need approximately 80 feet of Roof Cable.

Q
Can The Heat Cable Kit be placed on a pipe then insulated and covered over with wood or drywall?
A

It is never a good idea to sheetrock over an electrical item that is plugged into an outlet such as The Heat Cable Kit.

If you do want the Cable Kits to be sheet-rocked over, you should talk to an electrician about the best way to hardwire the Cable Kit into your home’s power supply.

Q
Do The Heat Cable Kits come with an automatic thermostat?
A

Yes, all the Heat Cable Kits come complete with a built in automatic thermostat.  Just plug it in and you’re good to go.

Q
Can I use the Electic Heat Cable kits on my hot water pipes? Or should I just wrap the cold pipes?
A

It really depends on the location of the exposed pipes you plan on insulating.

You should use the Heat Cable Kit on both your hot and cold water pipes if the pipes are exposed to the cold outside air.  So, if your pipes are under the house, in an exposed crawl space, or against an exterior uninsulated wall; then it might be a good idea to use the Heat Cables on both hot and cold pipes.

Remember, the water in the hot water line turns cold unless it is being used constantly.

Q
Does light on the plug for the Electric Pipe Heat Cable kit stay on all the time?
A

Yes, if its on it’s working

Q
Can I use The Electric Heat Cable Kits to protect my water hose?
A

No! The Electric Heat Cable Kits are made for copper, iron or Schedule 40 plastic water pipes only.  Don’t do it!

Q
How do I know if the Electric Heat Cable Kit is working properly?
A

If the Heat Cable Kit is installed correctly, the light in the plug will be on and the cable should be warm to the touch.
