The footage of heat tape needed to protect pipes against freezing depends on a few variables, most notably the pipe diameter. In general, pipes that are 1-1/2” or less in diameter require one run of heating cable, affixed at the 6 o’clock position. Larger pipe diameters require at least two cables run at the 4 o’clock and 8 o’clock positions. Click here to see our installation manual.
