It is snowing in my part of Calgary right now Yuck...

That said, we don't intend to winterized until after Canadian Thanksgiving, though the 12V heat pads could get turned on a few times between now & then, depending on the weather.

You must be way up north somewhere , all we have in the south is rain drizzle - was just out and didn't even feel as cool as expected ...

It has been snowing for a couple hours now. Temps just above freezing though. C'mon up for a snowball fight, Gabi.

Yes, it was snowing in Edmonton this morning... but it's not cold enough to need to winterize; last year, Edmonton didn't hit freezing overnight temperatures until the end of the month... and even then it wasn't to the point of needing to winterize, although rural areas run a few degrees colder.
Current and forecast Edmonton weather

I hope you are hooked up to electric before using the 12v heat pads, they pull a lot of current. In addition they are thermostatically controlled and they activate at freezing and shut off at 40 degrees. I assume you also have the foam which really keeps the tanks warmer.

Of course. Already used for a significant amount of time in April and May of this year! A very pricey option, which was quickly proved to be an appropriate choice for our location/use.
