PRO-Tect DIY Heating Cable for Pipes, Constant Wattage (7W/ft), 120V Description

A burst water pipe in the dead of winter can be a huge inconvenience and completely replacing the insulation needed to prevent pipes in perimeter walls and crawlspaces from freezing can be cost-prohibitive. 

To keep your most vulnerable pipes from freezing, the simple and DIY-friendly solution is to install a PRO-Tect heating cable for pipes. This 120 V plug-in heating cable generates heat (7 watts per linear foot) which will keep your pipes from freezing in low temperatures. The integrated thermostat control, located between the non-heating lead cable and the heating wire itself, will ensure a consistent temperature while minimizing energy use. The thermostat turns the heating cable on when exposed to temperatures below 37.4°F (3°C). It will shut the heating cable off when the pipe has been heated to a temperature of approximately 50°F (10°C).

This cable is 12' long and is great for 3/8” – 3/4" diameter pipes up to 14’ long and 1” – 1 1/2” diameter pipes up to 12’ long. 

The cable is covered by a 2-year warranty.

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 pipe heat be installed in walls?

No. Do not run constant wattage heating cable through walls, ceilings, or floors. The constant wattage cable must be installed 1/2“ away from combustible material.

Did you find this helpful? Yes No

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.
