How To Install a Long Length Retro-Line
Hello and welcome to the September 2017 Heat-Line Vlog.
We are right at the beginning of fall which means people are now starting to plan and prep their water lines for the winter ahead. One of our more popular systems this time of year is the in-pipe Retro-Line heating cable.
Short length Retro-Line systems can easily be pushed into the pipe by hand while longer systems need to be drawn in with assistance from the opposite end.
In this video blog, we are going to outline two common methods used to install a long length Retro-Line.
Before starting either method you will have to expose the end of the pipe in the building where you are planning on making the tee connection and where the power supply will be, as well as the opposite end of pipe which will be at the well, in a lake or in another building.
Method #1: Using an electrical or plumbers Fish Tape.
Method # 2: Using a foam mouse or conduit piston.
Listen to September's video blog and learn directly from two members of Heat-Line's technical team about two of the more common methods of installing long length Retro-Line systems.
