Just got in from unthawing my main central water, we have three. Feed lines are buried 8 ft deep but have to come up under water. Have 12 inch pipe with line coming up in center of it about 6 feet down with a light bulb hanging in there to keep feed line unfrozen. Frost around here will set in to ground to 6 or 7 ft deep some times under the waterers so you can't have it just in ground under the waters. Was'nt that bad today, just a burnt out light bulb. Replaced that and aimed a heater down well under water for a while then had to fill water itself with hot water to thaw valve in there.(Cows and sheep had drank it dry after line froze.) Coarse cows are thirsty and trying to drink as fast as I'm pouring 5 gal buckets into it. Get sorta funny look when they realize it's warm water and go to eating snow. Trickling hose around here wouldn't cut it! Heaviy flowing rivers freeze solid on top when it gets this cold! If I win the lottery I'll geta hired man and spend winters down where your at Old, down where it's nice and warm. LOL. Rocko.

Rocko, back in the day I used to use rough service light bulbs for heat. They lasted longer. Seems like about 25 years ago they cheapened up the light bulbs so they didn't last as long. A 60 watt light bulb under a hog water used to last a whole winter but after they were cheapened up a regular bulb would only last a month. Jim
