Hot Water Pipe Insulation

How to Insulate Hot Water Pipes, Litchfield Family Learns

To insulate your home’s hot water pipes, you can find neoprene and polyethylene sleeves at most home improvement stores. Use an acrylic black tape, tie wire or zip tie to secure the insulation sleeve in place around the pipe.
