Question about Plumbing
Can I wrap the power cable around my discharge pipe without damaging of over heating th cable or discharge pipe. I have 20 foot cable and the receptacle is only ten feet away. I am concerned that the excess cable could be a safety issue but I am also concerned with the SJTW cable rating and heat dissapation
What motor's amp draw? What is the pipe material? If you can loop the wire back and forth and tie it to the discharge pipe with a wire tie you would be better off. I have seen a 110 volt electric smoker melt the power cord in a retractable shop light. A coil of romex without metal at the center will do the same thing.
