Heat Tape Notice


For residents living in a mobile home, please check to see if your heat tape is working properly.  The water line service (copper line) is exposed to the elements and your line will freeze if your heat tape is not functioning properly. It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure the heat tape is working.

Some quick tips include:

  • check your breaker switch located in the breaker panel to ensure your outside plug-ins are turned on
  • check to see if the heat tape is physically plugged into an extension cord
  • use a hair dryer or trouble light to ensure power is available in the extension cord
  • check heat tape around the copper line and shut-off valve coming out of the ground to ensure it is properly insulated & wrapped and is not exposed to the cold

A little preventive maintenance goes a long way in ensuring your pipes do not freeze or burst.  Any costs to repair burst pipes or thaw water service on private property is the owner’s responsibility.

For further information, please call Infrastructure Services 780-865-2634.
