Today it got warm enough that our pipes thawed and water started working again. Yay! We decided to try to keep it that, so we went down to Lowe’s and bought some heat tape and some insulation. This whole setup makes me a bit nervous because of all the warnings on it. I am going to keep an eye on it and make sure it works ok. Why would anyone buy something with this much warning about fire on it and put it in their house? I put it outside, so we’ll see. I am not even sure it’s installed properly either. Oy.
Anyhow, we laid on the hose inside and then laid the heat tape along it just like the directions said, then we put the insulation over that. Then we hooked the whole thing up. This campground has a nice buried bucket type setup for the water so it keeps the faucet warm and unfrozen.
