    Labels for pipes (UV resistant)

    Any advice on good quality (read: UV proof/resistant) labels for labeling all of the pipes for my in ground pool? Previous home owner marked with a magic marker, but the sun just fades it away. Thanks in advance, John

    Is there a certain type of P-Touch label refill meant for outdoor (sun exposure) usage? I forgot to mention that I tried my P-touch label maker and they faded in a matter of months in the Texas sun. See pic.

    Google is your friend. Yup, P-touch labels come in many assorted types. Just order the outdoor heavy duty ones.

    Excellent thank you. Didn't know they made outdoor tape. Ordered from Amazon, thanks again.

    Turns out my current Brother label maker (model PT-55) only accepts M tape which is not laminated and not available in an outdoor option. So, looks like I need to buy a whole new label maker, along with some compatible outdoor tape. Nothings ever easy!
