In short - YES!
Unlike 120 volt heating devices, there is no electrical shock danger from HotLine Internal Pipe Heaters.
In fact, HotLine's low voltages are similar to those used by most common model railroad trains.
Here's a quick look at HotLine's safety features:
- All HotLine's are made with food-grade filament and are completely safe for immersion in incoming water lines.
- HotLine's are low-voltage: 6 to 32 Volts.
- HotLine's are fuse protected by UL recognized fuse holders and fuses.
- HotLine's will not burn, scar, or break PVC, ductile iron, steel, cast iron, polypropylene, or polyethylene pipe.
- HotLine's average operating temperature is approximately 100°F; only 1.4° higher than human body temperature.
- All HotLine's come with a Underwriters Laboratory (UL) approved, metal-enclosed power center box.
- HotLine's power center box has a grounded plug.
- Connections of the power center cord wires and heating element wires are offset to prevent short circuiting.
- The power center box is wired for the exact length of HotLine it is paired with.
- Input and output cords are higher gauges then required for safety.
- The power center box comes with an indicator light to show the HotLine is getting power.
- Only UL components are used in HotLine Internal Pipe Heaters.
