In response to Re: new water meter in unfinished basement
: Dale, thanks for the suggestion on my claw-foots, I'm looking into it.
: This house has been vacant for some years, so the water supply has been shut off.
: When the water company came to install a new meter in the basement they laughed at
: me and said it would freeze (I'm in Providence) and I should heat the (unfinished)
: basement first. I mentioned it seemed silly to heat an unfinished basement and they
: laughed at me again. My plumber is unnervingly dissinterested in addressing this issue for me.
: I know heating the basement is not the answer, and the only source of heat once inhabited is from
: a high efficieny gas furnace in another room in the basement, surely not enough to stop it from
: freezing. This is not an uncommon situation, what usually happens?

wendi, bud couldn't have told you any better. good luck on your project. Dale
