Great idea

Topic Type: 

This is a great idea. I had looked into something like this in the past, pressed in the same position. All I could find were heater chords for roofs, and they were too expensive. I didn't know this shorter heater strip existed. I was looking in the roofing section of the hardware store. I should have gone to the plumbing section.

The plumbing heat tape works great and it's safe. Built in thermostat makes it good for this application. This is being used in VA right now so not the coldest temperatures. Would love to see it tested at a colder climate. Report back if you do, please.
