      I have been informed that there is a product out there to prevent pipes from freezing. From what I was told, it is some type of wire that you snake thru the high pressure black pipes (like the ones used for lake water). If anyone has heard of this could you please send me info about it if there are websites out there. Thanks RF robfrye@mediaone.net

      here in Alaska there are several types of heat tapes, copper tubes for down the well situtations, a fairly new one using thermo plastic that wraps around the pipe (no thermostat) only heats areas that are cold very efficent. also plastic type, looks like tv lead in, dont recomend thisone has a tendcy to burn open and even can cause fires. another type has a thermostat that is placec next to the pipe, if that part of the pipe is cold it works but if not the other end can freeze. hope this helps
