Re: Sump Pump - Discharge riser freezing Installed a 6' self regulating pipe trace last night and wrapped it in 1/2" of preformed foam insulation. While the weather hasn't been as cold, the top area of the pipe that was about 0.5C before installation is now sitting at 4.5C.
Did some reading on the self regulating trace. Interesting how it can heat to different degrees along the entire run. Will look at other solution options in the spring but needed to know that the pipes were not going to freeze again this winter.
Thanks to all for your feedback.
