Cool pipe insulation

I actually have two questions. First one is I had a pipe to burst on me about 4 days ago and I put one of those clamps on it to repair the pipe, I was wondering how long that will last? My second question is I am going to insulate my pipes what works the best the heat tape that foam stuff, or does it really matter?
Thank you for any help.

A pipe clamp may last for many years, but it is best to do a permanent repair if it located inside a wall. If it's out in the open, the pipe clamp should do.
Use snap-on foam pipe insulation.
Those heat tapes can be a fire hazard near flammable material (wall framing, etc.).
Good Luck!

The pipe is in a crawl space under my house, so if it does burst again it will not damage anything, it will leak a little into my basement wich is not finished. As long as it holds for a while then it should be fine for me. Thank you very much for the advice
