New pipewrap on cold ac line
Before I go about doing this, I thought I'd ask the pro's. How can I add more (or new) pipewrap on the cold AC line outside?
I was out there the other day, and the foam pipewrap that came with the house is soaking wet with water, and it had a couple tears in it. I was thinking of replacing it with a rubber coated one. Before I do this, I wanted to check with people here to see what their thoughts are. Is there a better way to do this? Should I remove the old one and put the new rubber one on? Put the new one over the old one? If I use a rubber one, will water be trapped and cause rusting (oxidizing) on the copper line and cause a leak?
