Thank you for your interest in the EasyHeat AHB-016! No, according to the manufacturer, for safety reasons this Freeze Protection Heat Cable should not be installed underground or wrapped around a PVC pipe. The cable should be applied straight along pipe with the plastic pipes wrapped in aluminum foil before installing the cable for better heat distribution. Crossing the cable over itself will create a hotspot and cause damages to both the tape and the pipe. This could also lead to a fire. Please refer to the specification sheet if you have more questions.
