How about a quick how to? Here you will find how to wrap pipes, the pros, and the cons.
Use dishwashing gloves. That shit will itch you to death. It is a very fine fiberglass.
Then, wrap it from the bottom to the top. This will make it lap like a roof, top over bottom, and water won’t get in. Your pipes won’t rust.
If you dont use the silcone, you screwed up. Your wraps will fall apart, and discolor from the sun and water, very fast.
USE THE SPRAY SILICONE! REAPPLY IT EVERY NOW AND THEN! IT WILL MAKE THE FIBERGLASS LAST LONGER! The wraps above, they were black. Without the spray, this will happen, fast.
SPRAY SILICONE ON THE WRAPS! HEAT THE PIPES UP, SPRAY IT AGSIN. SILCONE WILL SOAK INTO THE LAPS THIS WAS, SEALING THEM UP. SPRAY IT AGAIN. This is a pretty big Pro for wrapping your pipes. It helps keep your pipes less rusty.
Pros, less rust.
Cons, it will rot. It will get on your leg, and it will itch. Thanks for reading!
A trick… unroll a roll of black. Lay it in the sun for a couple weeks. It will evenly turn a lighter shade of black. Use it and a new roll of black. Now, wrap which ever color you want
