Description for Easy Heat PSR1006

If you need to maintain proper pipe temperatures in applications that range from residential freeze protection to commercial maintenance flow-control processes, rely on the proven performance of EasyHeat pipe tracing products.

EasyHeat, your industry leader in pipe freeze prevention and roof-and-gutter deicing applications, introduces PSR pre-terminated, self-regulating heating cable. Imagine the convenience: each PSR cable is a pre-terminated, off-the-shelf product with the efficiency and functionality of self-regulating technology. With this built-in application flexibility, PSR becomes a first-choice solution for your heat tracing needs.

PSR is a parallel resistance cable with factory sealed connections. It is manufactured with water-resistant TPE outer jacket, UL Listed to Canadian safety standards and CSA Certified for ordinary locations. Rated at 5 watts per foot at 50ºF. 120 VAC models have integral three-wire plug with pilot light; 240 VAC models have three-wire pigtail.

Features:

  • Prevent water pipes from freezing
  • Prevent the formation of ice dams on roof tops
  • Suitable for use on metal and plastic pipes up to 2-1/2" in diameter
  • All cables have a 30" cold lead
  • Pilot light in the plug on 120 VAC
  • PSR 120 VAC heating cables have a power indicator light in the plug, visual assurance that the system is energized.
  • Cable can be overlapped if necessary
  • Self-regulating heating cable means energy efficiency. The heat output is varied in relation to the ambient temperature. As the surrounding temperature increases, the heat output of the PSR cable decreases. But when the temperature decreases, the cable heat output increases and provides the heat needed along the length of the cable.

The PSR system can be installed with the confidence that it will operate satisfactorily for years. When it comes to freeze protection, stay with the leader - Easy Heat.

Installed both a 50 ft and 100 ft PSR Pipe Tracing Heat Cable in copper gutters and 34 ft downspouts. Fabricated copper plumbing straps and bare 12 AWG copper wire to loosely attach heat cables to gutter straps and inside downspouts. Load total for 2 cables is 750 watts. Pre-assembled 3 prong plugs are plugged into weather protected 15A 110V Tamper Resistant Weather Resistant receptacles fed by GFCI breaker and with Leviton on-off z-wave switch rated for up to 1500 watts load. Components were installed in January 2016 and activated and currently being operated in Washington, DC following a 24" snow accumulation on the low slope standing seam copper roof. System is operating as planned and had eliminated prior icicle and ice ledge build up that occurred prior to installation. It is very important to assure heat cable extends below freeze line. To eliminate the build-up of icicles from low temperature steam emitted through the inner element of a concentric air intake - exhaust out PVC assembly from a gas fired condensing boiler I fabricated a cylindrical cage out of 1/2" galvanized mesh fabric and fastened one offset loop of the heat cable around the vent assembly. This provides enough heat to keep icicles from forming and would have enough heated fabric to keep ice build up from the concrete base 5 feet below from impairing boiler function. This was a DIY project.

It seems to work

The lead-in part of the cable is too short; in fact shorter than other heat cables -- only about 24" I wish that it were 6'.( 72")

The lead-in part of the cable is too short; in fact shorter than other heat cables -- only about 24" I wish that it were 6'.( 72")

Gets barely warm, but at least just enough to function as needed.

Application is roof edge deicing, applied in triangles pretty much according to instructions.

However enclosed instructions are rather poor, with insufficient detail and very small drawings. I was able, with only a bit of difficulty, to figure it out myself. Enclosed instructions are definitely lacking!

I recommend applying 24" aluminum flashing over comp shingles, which reduces friction and facilitates snow sliding into gutter.

worked for a tough spo

By fiessef

Comments about 12 ft, 60 Watt, 120 VAC PSR Pipe Tracing Heat Cable:

A friend had a pair of pipes under a floor that kept freezing. The only access was where the pipes entered the space between two floor joists so about 6" high and 12" wide but 8' deep. I attached these to fiberglass tube insulation and then sealed the tube as I pushed it down the pipe. I also put a bit of a hook on the end of the easyheat and helped pull with a sectional bit of tubing that was later withdrawn.

I've used Easy Heat heat cable in the past so I know it's a great product. If you are plagued by frozen pipes in cold weather, get some of this cable. It'll do the job dependably and economically for a long time. Also, it's so fast and easy to get from SupplyHouse.com, and prices are great!

Works as Advertised

By Aguada

from Virginia Beach

Verified Buyer

Comments about 50 ft, 250 Watt, 120 VAC PSR Pipe Tracing Heat Cable:

I used this product to deice the high efficiency furnace and A/C water drain that goes to the outside of the house. During low temps the water would freeze in the PVC drain and the water would begin to backup to the furnance in the attic. A oversight in the design of the high efficiency that I overlooked. Put this product inside the PVC water drain pipe. I plug it in when temps drop below 30 degrees. The trace gets warm enough to keep the drain free of ice.

Hummingbird feeder winter protection

By Hummer-Dad

from Bellingham, WA

Verified Buyer

Comments about 6 ft, 30 Watt, 120 VAC PSR Pipe Tracing Heat Cable:

Perfect device to keep a hummingbird feeder from freezing up in the winter if you live where winters are mild and there are hummingbird species who prove willing to winter over with you and your feeder. The hummers will even sit on the heat cable windings next to the feeder for warmth on particularly nasty weather days. Here in the Puget Sound region, last winter there were days with morning lows below 20 deg F. This cable wrapped around my inverted glass bottle type feeder allowed the food to stay liquid and the Anna's hummers to have breakfast at the crack of dawn. There were hummer battles over my feeder on these mornings, possibly because other feeders had frozen in the neighborhood.

Prevents Frozen Hummingbird Feeder

By Hummer's Hamster

from Bellingham, WA

Verified Buyer

Comments about 6 ft, 30 Watt, 120 VAC PSR Pipe Tracing Heat Cable:

In the north (WA state), winter can bring frozen hummingbird feeders, which threatens these tiny fiesty flying demons who choose to winter-over. The Easy Heat 6ft cable works well wrapped around the feeder, secured with some electical tape and Velcro strips. The feeder doesn't become too hot or cold for the hummers. Sometimes the birds sit on the warm cable parts warming up.

  • 6 ft, 30 Watt, 120 VAC PSR Pipe Tracing Heat Cable

    Q:

    Does this heat tape have some type of thermometer or switching device that is located on a particular end. Where I want to install this heat tape has the plug end in the heated area and the rest of the tape will be in the cold area. Is that sufficient or is the thermometer on the plug end, or does the heat tape itself sense the cold.
    Asked on 3/27/2016 by Ed from Philadelphia

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Using self-regulating technology, a thermostat is not usually required with this heat cable; the cable can be overlapped if necessary. Self regulating heating cable varies its heat output in relation to the ambient temperature. As the surrounding temperature increases, the heat output of the PSR cable decreases. But when the temperature decreases, the cable heat output increases and provides the heat needed along the length of the cable.

    Asked on 2/2/2016 by Philibert from Chicoutimi,Qc

    1 answer

      A:

      The PSR1050 is NOT approved for installation inside French Drains or drain lines (same goes for any of the Easy Heat cables). The PSR can be installed on a drain pipe above ground.

    Q:

    Have water softener drain pipe, can I run this inside the drain pipe to prevent the outlet pipe freezing. (Set up is 3/4" copper pipe entering 2" PVC pipe to drain outside, copper pipe stops about 4 inches inside the PVC)
    Asked on 11/25/2015 by Ed

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      The PSR for pipe freeze protection is applied on the drain line and not inside. Although, it is used inside a downspout. In a downspout, it provides sufficient heat inside the downspout enough to keep water flowing downward. To protect both outside pipes and pipes inside, the right amount of heat needs to be applied by the PSR on the 2" drain line. The pipe must be exposed above ground.

    Q:

    Can this heater tape be used in the storage area under myy kitchen sink? I have been told it is only for outdoor or external use. My sink is on an outside wall and even though they are well insulated, when very cold and or windy, the pipes will freeze. Also, is the 30 inch lead pretty standard or are longer leads available? Thank you!

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      The PSR is used to prevent water pipes or drain pipes from freezing, but is for outdoor use as noted. The Freeze Free product line can be placed on pipes inside walls provided the following conditions are observed:

      1. Cable is accessible at any time for inspection
      2. Clear from any combustible material
      3. Must check with local electrical inspector for guidance and approvals

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      I like the pipe tracing cables but this isn't the right application. This cable would be right if you were concerned about an external pipe because it uses the ambient temperature as a kind of switch. Heat tape comes on when the air around the pipe is around or below freezing.If you have below freezing ambient air in your under sink cabinet you have a much bigger problem. Chances are that you don't and using this would just be a waste of money.If you are really concerned about freezing these pipes then I would invest in some pipe insulation instead and then look for the source of outdoor air infiltration. Look for a source of light under the sink that comes from outside. If you find that you should be able to seal off that area and be fine shape.

      A:

      Yes, the PSR is designed to be use on a rubber flat roof and downspouts. The specific details on how to install is covered in the PSR Installation Instructions. The electric bill is subjective depending on use and location, so the added cost could not be confirmed.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Randy,The product you selected is meant to be wrapped around or run the length of a pipe. Other products are designed for roofs and are used differently.The 24ft 120 watt cable uses the same power as 2 60 watt light bulbs. So it would raise your bill about the same as turning on 2 lamps and leaving them on for the time that the outside temperature is between approximately 15 degrees and 40 degrees.
      Don't know about using either product on a rubber roof but it should work if the cable contacts the surface well. You might have to drill into the rubber to attach the cable well enough.
      Good luck!Ric

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      The PSR if directly plugged to the GFI rated outlet will always be on. At colder temperatures, it will draw a higher power requirement to produce the right amount of heat to prevent ice dams on the roof. There is the option to use the RS2 to limit the operation of the cable when the temperature is below 40F and melting water is present.
