Hey zachbomb,

Thanks for your question and welcome to the community.

Much like hand tools you use almost every time you are working; it's better to just purchase it rather than rent it. 

This is no exception to using a water pipe heat cable....they are useful and much cheaper in price than you think. Especially if you are going to use it numerous times.

Added to that fact, I've never seen any Home Depot Tool Rental Center carry a water pipe heat cable, namely because it isn't in demand enough to have it available. In fact, I've only seen heat cables and never any 'machines' to thaw pipes, shy of using a hair dryer or a very carefully using a heat gun.

Shown below and linked here, buying a a water pipe heat cable is under $30, and can be used numerous times if installed correctly.

Frost King 12 ft. Water Pipe Heat Cable

I'm assuming this is for indoor use; as you'll need a roof heating cable for exterior uses.

Let us know if you have any further questions,
