    Hi All,
    I have the Britetap chicken watering system installed on an insulated 5 gallon igloo cooler. I have heat tape wound around the reservoir that sits outside of the cooler and a decicer inside the cooler. This worked for awhile, but now the temp has dropped into the single digits at night. The water in the cooler and the reservoir are not frozen, but the nipples are frozen solid. Does anyone have any ideas? I really want to continue with this watering system through the winter if possible.....
