When using a control or controller that does not include integral ground fault, using a ground fault breaker is required to provide protection for the heater tapes used with this product. Failure to do so will put the installation at risk for fire if the heaters short. You will want to use the GFEP breaker that has the higher ~30 mA trip standard required for equipment protection.
Do I need to supply the controller with a ground fault breaker?
