Concerns about HEAT TAPE…. the present one has been installed for years and no one knows how long it will last. Don’t wait until a pipe freezes, check it TODAY!
A fellow resident suggested this easy way to test your heat tape…
Open access to under you house to reach the heat tape wrapped around the main water supply.
Leave your hand exposed until it is real cold then grab around the insulated heat tape.
If it is warm the heat tape is working!!
