Thank you.

Frozen pipes are a problem no matter what. Liqui-Fire (without the letter “d”) makes it a problem that is much easier to deal with at little expense and time.

Whether you call it thaw, thawing, unthaw, unthawing, unfreeze, unfreezing, melt, or melting, fixing, or DIY or D.Y.I., it’s still a problem. Most often the pipe is frozen outside in the ground or underground, or under a mobile home, or in a wall. Most pipes freeze where most homeowners would never install heat trace tape. Save your money and save you time.

That’s why people that have used Liqui-Fire says, “It works, so you don’t have to”.

Please be certain to read “Global Warming & Frost Prevention Heat Trace Tapes and Cables”.

Global Warming & Heat Trace Tape

The impact on the environment caused by the use of “Heat Trace Tape” or “Frost Prevention Heat Tape” or “Heat Transfer Tapes” is absolutely alarming.

Simply envision the Arctic Ice Cap as being similar to a tray of solid ice. Now envision that tray of ice with electrical wires dispersing heat. Do you still envision the Polar ICE caps?

In one country, one company alone boasts sales of more than 200 million feet per year. That is enough heat trace frost prevention tape to circle the world at the equator. But forget the equator and circling the Earth.

Use the North Pole and begin to spiral it leaving 2-3 feet between every lap of the spiral. 2-3 feet between laps prevents any frost or ice from developing. That 200,000,000 feet sold is by one company only in one country only. Now multiply that by the number of companies manufacturing Heat Trace Tape and/or Frost Prevention Heat Tracing Tape or Cable. Now add those millions of square miles of heat and double it each and every year. These companies are not environmentally nor socially responsible stewards of the Earth we all live on. They will profit while destroying and have made their money while the world deals with the permanent problems they caused.

Do you see any polar ice now?

Continued sales and use of Heat Trace Tapes and/or Frost Prevention Heat Tapes will cause permanent damage for millions. What ill effects is all this heat causing to communities that depend on ice roads, or to the ski industry, the snowmobile industry, the snow board industry, the skating / hockey industry, You can sense the environmental impact “Frost Prevention Heat Trace Tapes” cause.

Increases in extreme heat in other parts of the world causing droughts, raging forest fire storms, increased numbers of hurricanes & tornadoes, floods & flooding, farm lands turning into baron waste land, food shortages, etc. Increasing sales and the persistence of this practice cause permanent environmental damages globally.  And those damages affect your house or home.

Everywhere we here about Global Warming. There are many causes but generally fossil fuels and the automobile is said to be responsible. Some less publicized causes of global warming are heat trace tape & heat blankets or frost prevention blankets.

These products are all similar to one another in that they are designed solely for the purpose of keeping things warm. That is why they called them “Frost Prevention Heat Tapes”. The more they sell the greater the profits and the warmer the world will become. In essence; if these manufacturers continue to grow at their current rate then the world will become warm and these products won’t be needed. These manufacturers are not being socially or environmentally responsible.

They continually use electricity to product heat which in turn prevents frost as it naturally occurs. Some will dismiss this fact and think only of themselves. The manufactures will deny heat trace tapes have any affect on global warming. However we have to see the big picture.

The big picture once was a big sheet of ice and standard cold winter temperatures. It created a balance of weather temperatures in the winter as well as the summer. Things were normal and the standard number of people may or may not have had a pipe freeze.

Remember the big picture was a big sheet of ice we called the frozen arctic. Let’s compare the arctic ice shield and subsequent frozen ground to a couple of ice cube trays.

The Arctic Ice was like an aluminum ice cube tray without any dividers in the try. It is like the arctic ice which was one slab of ice prior to both heat trace tapes and nuclear powered ice-breaker ships cracking it up.

Shaved ice or cracked ice melts extremely fast compared to a solid tray of ice. The cracks in the ice made by heat trace tapes as well as by ice-breakers have the same effects as crushing ice. Heat trace tapes and heat blankets prevent frost from occurring naturally with continuity of the ice and frost fields. Ice or frozen actually melts extremely rapidly if the ground beside it is not frozen. This is exactly the same as shaved ice or crushed ice and how fast it melts compared to a solid tray of ice.

But when people begin to wake up to the truth and also realize they pay month after month for electricity to use heat trace tapes and heat blankets, then perhaps they will realize Liqui-Fire was the only method that did not cause permanent damage to our environment or cause global warming for profit.

Actual customers say relax and do not worry if you use Liqui-Fire.

One younger customer in British Columbia had a frozen water line or poly-pipe.  He and his wife had bucketed water for over 6 weeks from a mountain creek on their property.  He ordered 6 bottle of “LIQUI-FIRE”.  He poured 3 in and then flushed the pipe with water to try to push “LIQUI-FIRE” through faster.  That didn’t work and so he called us.  He poured in the other 3 bottles and was told not to back flush.

The next day he called and was as happy as can be when he told me, “If you were here right now, my wife would kiss you!”  Now that’s a happy customer.

Regardless of how you call it a house, a home, a building, a structure, thaw, thawing, unthaw, unthawing, unfreeze, unfreezing, in a wall, in the ground, under or beneath your mobile home, underground, or whatever,,, Liqui-Fire works so you don’t have to.

Heat Trace / Tracing Tapes

Heat Trace / Heat Tracing Tapes / Frost Prevention Heat Tapes

Most come with a 5 year LIMITED WARRANTY.  The fine print warranty is often limited to the replacement cost of the product ONLY.  Some limited warranties specify that these products must be installed correctly by a licensed plumber.  Either way you are stuck paying for any damages incurred from a frozen pipe.

Although the initial expense of these products seem moderately priced, it is the month after month year after year added electrical utility charges that add up.  Again in 5 years you will have to replace these again at your cost.

Liqui-Fire, Heat Tapes, and drain cleaners all have an initial cost.  Heat trace tapes has the initial product cost, it has the installation cost of a plumber as per the limited warranty product replacement, it has a monthly electrical or electricity utility cost, plus these products cause environmental damage called “Global Warming” which cost us all.

Residential pipes that freeze may include, water feed lines or well intakes, pipes in a wall, pipes beneath your residence, drains, sewage lines such as septic system tanks and pipes.  When any of your pipes freeze it is a huge inconvenience.  You can’t use one without the other working properly regardless of what you call them.

Your best choice of options for thawing any frozen residential pipe is always Liqui-Fire.  It is only $19.99 plus tax and has no addition hidden cost nor monthly up-charge on your electrical utility bill.  Liqui-Fire works inside your pipes making it simple to use to thaw your pipes in the wall or underground.  Installing Heat Trace Tape on all your pipes above and below ground becomes extremely expensive when you consider the hourly rate of a licensed plumber via the installation fine print.  PLUS: if your pipes freeze even though you have used Heat Trace Tape, then you will need to use Liqui-Fire or wait until spring.

The best suggestion is to keep a bottle of Liqui-Fire on hand just in case your pipes should ever freeze.  Save and enjoy your money~!

Drain Cleaner Damage & Dangers


Read about real people, real forensic facts & truths, versus the safety of drain cleaners and/or drain openers.  These truths about the dangers, pipe damage, and human dis-figuration can be seen here at:

Drain Cleaner – Cheap but *read this*

Many homeowners have used a crystal or liquid drain cleaner or drain opener.  There are many brand names.  Many of us have found we had to replace the drain trap after using one of these products as it continues to aggressively eat through plumbing parts, eg: a bathroom vanity drain trap.

Although a vanity drain trap is visible and easily replaced, it is a hidden cost.  What is more hidden though is the damage done to your plumbing in hidden areas that you do not see.  The forensic photo found on the page listed above shows that chemical deterioration continues to occur to a drain pipe sewage system even though the drain cleaner / drain opener was used 4 days prior.

So do not use drain cleaners or drain openers if you have frozen pipes.  Some people call it thaw or thawing or unthaw or unthawing or even unfreezing a frozen pipe.  If you are wondering how to D.I.Y. (do it yourself) and what to safely use to thaw your frozen water intake pipes or well pipes, your drains, sewers, septic system lines and tanks, then you have just found the ONLY safe solution other than good fortune and luck or a plumber.

So for your personal safety as well as to prevent deterioration of your drains, sewers, septic pipes, septic tanks, and septic system line it is therefore recommended that you consider using other safe alternatives.

On days when the weather is freezing outside and your underground pipes and some pipes in your walls are exposed to the frigid cold of winter, it is a good practice to open cupboard doors and run some hot water before calling it a night.
