    best way to insulate an outside water pipe? 13th Dec 11 at 10:12 PM
    hi, wonder if anyone can help? I have an outside water pipe that rums very close to the exterior wall. Have lived here 8 years and it's never frozen yet, but up until this year it had a dripping leak, which I've fixed, and am now worried that the cold temps will freeze the pipe now that there is no drip to allow for expanding water

    there isno internal stop !!!! for the pipe, which is a job for next year. I don't mind about it being particularly thrifty if it works, but my only opportunity before new year to get it done is tomorrow, so I need something that I can do myself, and materials that can be purchased from a store (like B&Q or whatever rather than specialist on-line retailers) and more than anything it must work!

    I've seen lagging for exterior pipes but really don't know what is the best to get.

    sorry if this is the wrong board.
