NeverFreeze® Pipe Tracing Cable
Electric Radiant Heat for Pipes
- Designed for indoor and outdoor piping
- Safe for straight, wrap-around, and overlap applications
- Engineered for both residential and commercial applications
- Single cold lead wire for easy hookup
- Self-regulating temperature reduces power output
Drops in temperature can cause damage to your pipes if not properly cared for. Burst water pipes can cause flooding, leaks, and lead to dangerous mold and mildew later . Often, it is too late for prevention once an issue occurs and the damage is done long before anyone realizes. All the strife can be avoided easily and safely with NeverFreeze pipe tracing heating cable. Prevent costly damage and exhaustive repairs by easily installing the flexible cable ahead of time. Unlike other pipe tracing cables, NeverFreeze has unlimited installation methods, is ultra-flexible, and can be crossed along the spigot valve. Self-regulating heating elements reduce power output and consumption to the lowest possible point as the ambient conditions get warmer. Systems using self-regulating elements may not completely turn off without the use of an outside control.
