Re: Sump Pump - Discharge riser freezing

said by mepadre:

I will find out whether insulating the vents and leaving on a 100w bulb holds temperature.

The heat tape is going to do the job better and consume less power than a 100w bulb. Plus it's going to have a thermostat on it so it's only going to kick on when it's needed.
