The problems with freezing can very simply be avoided by fitting the Ideal band along the piping - it is ready to plug in and fitted with an automatic thermostat. Once the pipe insulation has been applied, it is not only safe, but extra expenses for repairing water pipes and also damage from leaking pipes is avoided.
KLIMA frost free ribbon (with a 2 meter connecting cable with earthed plug) comes complete with a bi-metal temperature regulator. KLIMA frost free ribbon is available in lengths of 1 to 48 meters.
