New Product on Our Website: Raychem FrostGuard Heating Cable for Pipe Freeze Protection & Roof & Gutter De-Icing

 
       
Raychem FrostGuard preassembled self-regulating heating cables are designed for residential and commercial metal and plastic pipe freeze protection and roof and gutter deicing applications. 120 V FrostGuard cables are available in 6, 12, 18, 24, 36, 50, 75 and 100 foot lengths, and each comes assembled with a 6-ft power cord and 3-prong, grounded, lighted plug to show the system is on. 120 V FrostGuard
cables are ideal for smaller jobs such as roof and gutter deicing on porches and overhangs, as well as for pipe freeze protection on metal or plastic pipes up to 2-1/2 inches in diameter.

240 V FrostGuard cables are available in 6, 12, 18, and 24 foot lengths and each come assembled with a 6-ft power cord for terminating in a junction box.

New Product: API LockNDry Indoor/Outdoor Power Supply Cord. Secure water-resistant electrical connection

http://www.morelectricheating.com/products/MANUFACTURERS/API/LOCKNDRY.aspx

LockNDry Indoor/Outdoor Power Supply Cord, 25 or 50 Feet

The revolutionary LOCKNDRY outdoor/indoor detachable power supply cord provides a weather-resistant seal while keeping the connection firmly secured. The specially designed plug on the LOCKNDRY cord fits any standard outlet, but when mated with a LOCKNDRY compatible power cord, the large black nut pulls the plug tight against the gasket to form a water-resistant seal. The red nut then locks everything in place and prevents cord separation. The LOCKNDRY is great as an all-purpose extension cord, too. 16 gauge, 13 Amp Rating, 25 or 50-foot cord. One year warranty.

• Secure water-resistant electrical connection
• General-use extension cord
• Indoor/outdoor
• Securely locks connection together

• Plug the 3-prong cord into a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) or a properly-grounded 3-hole outlet that is protected by a GFCI.
• The heater is thermostatically controlled and will not turn on unless the ambient temperature approaches freezing temperatures.
• It is good practice to drain and unplug the hose when not in use to extend the lifetime of the hose.
• If water is frozen inside the hose, allow several minutes for the ice to melt after plugging in the hose and before use.
• DO NOT pull or tug the hose with excessive force as this may damage the fittings and electronic components.

Constant Wattage Pipe Cable

Many people are looking for the most inexpensive and easiest to install heating cable for their pipes which is what is called constant wattage pipe heat trace cable. It is a smaller cable as opposed to self-regulating cable. There are five manufacturers of constant wattage cable and we sell three of them. EasyHeat makes AHB,  Wrap-on and King Electric makes their CWP. There are also a couple of other brands we do not sell called Frost King and M-D Building Products which are similar.
