Re: Extreme Cold
The problem with "HEAT TAPE" is that they are normally at least 6 feet long, and you only need about 3-6 INCHES of the stuff to adequately warm up a typical thur hull fitting.
"Non regulating heating cable: This type of heat tape is regulated by a thermostat. It can be purchased by the foot or in a roll as well. The heating cable can be custom fit to your application because it can be cut to any size that is needed and the ends are then added to the length of cable. This type of heat tape will require a connection kit with an end plug and outlet as well as a thermostat to regulate the temperature."
