Yes, you can. The cable is a parallel electrical device which means you can cut it without affecting the power output per foot. We sell this product by foot which means you get to avoid wastage on the job site.
Yes. The use of insulation with the pipe freeze protection system is recommended because of these reasons:
Fiberglass-based tapes are recommended for attaching the cable to the pipe. We offer them at Heavenly Heat.
The amount of cable needed depends on the size and type of the pipe. The lowest expected temperatures also matter. With information on the type of pipe, pipe diameter, length of pipe and the minimum expected temperature you can contact us for a quote.
There is no built-in thermostat. However, we recommend using our controls which activate the system for continuous operation at 40 degrees F or below.
Yes. The maximum length will depend on the cable type, starting temperature and voltage. Contact us today for more information on the maximum length.
We have three different max power outputs: 10W/ft., 8W/ft., and 5W/ft. Since the cables are self-regulating the actual power output depends on the temperature. The lower the temperature is, the higher the power output.
At a minimum, the system is made up of a PRO-Tect Pipe Freeze Protection Self-Regulating Cable, Power Connection Kit, and End Seal Kit. Installing a control is highly recommended. We offer all these components together with other accessories. The use of another manufacturer’s components will void the warranty.
The cable can be used on aboveground water pipes that are insulated and weatherproofed.
No. They must be used with AC voltage.
