Default Sous Vide Repair

My SV cooker had an unplanned meeting with the kitchen floor, the small plastic tabs that hold the end cap/pump housing in place were broken off. I sourced high temp food safe tape to repair it, some of it was more expensive than the cooker. Then I remembered reading the specs on 3M Super 33+ electric tape that I frequently use at work, high temp rating 220° F. I did the repair 3 months ago, making sure I didn't block the pump outlet. No signs of peeling or failure. The upper ring of tape is an easy to see low water level mark. I do have to remove the stick in order to remove/install the clamp but it ain't rocket surgery.P1000053.jpg

As the old saying goes "If it can't be fixed with tape or superglue, it can't be fixed"

You might want to try this stuff instead. It's silicone tape. It stretches and sticks to itself and I think it will work much better than electrical tape. Plus, it can take temps up to 500 deg. As an added bonus, it comes in different colors so you can dress up the busted heater.
