I have chickens and a whole host of other animals here and all the watering devices are over one hundred feet from the source of water. Normally this is not an issue I just haul buckets in the winter and use a garden hose in the warmer months. But I've been having heart problems and was told not to be hauling water for a while (no heavy lifting) so I've been having friends and family help out for a few days. I feel like a pain in the butt and hate watching them have to do this for me, so I'm looking for ideas on how to use a hose in below freezing weather here. I know there are heated plug in hoses but they cost a fortune for the length I'll need and I don't know how I'd plug them in, I don't have an outlet on the well or pump house so I'm not sure how much of a problem that would be. I've heard of using compressed air, I'm not sure how easy that would be with a long length of hose and needing to use it at least 2 times a day every day. I don't know if there's any heat tapes or insulating stuff you can put on a hose. If anyone has any ideas or adaption contraptions they use I'm all ears. Thanks.
