Pipe Freeze Protection In-Line Splice Kit (Hazardous Location Rated)
PRO-Tect: Pipe Freeze Protection Self-Regulating Heating Cable Description
This kit is used to properly splice two pipe freeze protection cables to one another, as long as both cables are from the same manufacturer, the same voltage, and have the same wattage per linear foot output. This is particularly useful if you're adding a new cable to a pre-existing cable. The kit is NEMA 4X waterproof and includes: a main box, 2 sealing grommets, 2 pressure end seals, 2 gaskets, and 2 covers for the main box.
The use of another manufacturer's in-line splice kit with a WarmlyYours pipe freeze protection system will void the warranty.
This kit is Hazardous Location Rated.

Customer Questions & Answers
PRO-Tect: Pipe Freeze Protection Self-Regulating Heating Cable has 21 Questions and Answers.
Will heat tape really keep my pipes from freezing?
Simply put, yes--the right type of heat tape will really keep your pipes from freezing. By applying gentle heat, heat tape can prevent the water in your pipes from turning to ice and blocking the flow of water--or worse. Combined with proper insulation, heat tape regulates the overall temperature of your water pipes.
Can heat tape start a fire?
No, as long as it's properly installed. However, improper installation, use, and/or maintenance of electrical heating cable can cause fires, electric shock, and/ or frozen pipes.
Will pipe freeze protection cables work on DC voltage?
No. They are not designed to be powered by DC voltage. They must be used with AC voltage.
What is heat trace?
Heat trace, heat tape, or heating cable for pipes is typically an electric heating cable that can be attached to the pipe which helps keep non-flowing water pipes in poorly insulated perimeter walls flowing despite harsh winter temperatures.
How long does it take for pipes to unfreeze if heat tape is installed?
Unfortunately there's no set answer for this because it depends on many factors such as the diameter of the pipes, the installation density of the heating cables, the outdoor temperature, the installation of thermal insulation sleeves, etc.
There are too many variables to provide an accurate answer. Even though this product is designed to keep pipes from freezing, it is not designed to thaw pipes. If your pipe has frozen with the heat tape installed and energized, please check the placement of the built-in thermostat and verify that the insulation has been properly installed and waterproofed.
