Looks great, but their math is WAY off. I purchased 200 feet of 1/4" manila rope with the intentions of wrapping two heating pipes floor to ceiling, one in my kitchen, and one in my bathroom. It turns out 200 feet of 1/4" manila rope is good for wrapping 6'3" of one pipe. So if you want to wrap an entire pipe floor to ceiling, assuming you have 8 foot ceilings, I'd advise you to purchase 300 feet of 1/4" manila rope and have some left over. This is quite a laborious task. If I had it to do again I'd use 150 feet of 1/2" manila rope. I believe that's the size they used in the picture at the top of this page anyway.
