NE part of SW Iowa

I'll just mention our situation, with water pipes, in old milk barn area.

Dad bought those EdenPure heaters, off the TV, and they worked to keep that small area heated. (should say overheated, as it didn't go low enough, for a T-stat setting).


We have had 2 failures, where the pipes froze and cracked, because the rural electricity "flicker" during the night, and the heater just shutoff and doesn't restart, unless you manually push the ON button. We got lucky and the cracks in the frozen pipe, where just above the concrete floor and easy to fix.


Two years ago, I got the plumbers/well driller to install an underground curbstop, so I can shutoff water, in Wintertime; to that milk barn.


That electric ceramic heater seemed safe enough, but that milk barn area is all concrete and red brick.
