Forum Title: insulated pipe
Wondering if there is a pipe that can withstand freezing temperatures without using heat tape, etc. We want to run an outdoor water supply line on a mountain that has ledge close to the surface, so the pipe can't be buried too far.

Thanks. I'm looking for something that would prevent the water from freezing. Like maybe a pipe surrounded by foam, surrounded by pipe?

Insulation doesn't create heat. Which is needed to prevent freezing.

Most of the flexible polyethylene will stretch to some extent. I am not sure that I would expect anything to hold up over repetitive freeze/thaw cycles, though.
