I'm going to make up a cold weather fresh water hose. My question is what type of heat tape do you use on the water hose? I checked out heat tape in a number of stores. Reading the instructions it says not to use on flexible hose. Only use on hard plastic or metal pipe.
Also what size of pipe insulation do you use after putting the heat tape on?
Lastly, I noticed one type of heat tape you wrapped around the pipe and another type stated not to wrap around the pipe. Is one type better than another? I've never used heat tape before so it's all new to me.
Appreciate any suggestions and comments you have on this subject.
I did check old posts and found a lot of people using heat tape ,but wanted to make sure I get the right type. I have a feeling you're using what I've been looking at and just making it work.
