Forum Title: Freezing tub trap
My tub trap is under the floor in an extremely shallow, unheated crawl space. My house is up on peers and the crawl space floor is dirt with the skirting of the house coming down to the ground. It is too shallow for anyone to get in there and insulate the skirting. I want to try to live in the house this winter- I have only used the house as a summer house up till now. I am worried my trap will freeze. I'm in northern NY.

get a shovel. and make the access to the tub drain accessible, build a box out of wood insulate the crap out of the drain and attach the box over the trap screw to the underside of the floor

yes IF, it is insulated to where NO AIR can freely flow around it if it were just insulated, it would freeze, but by insulating it and building a box. you are keeping the cold air out

And this will be enough to keep it from freezing? It doesn't need some source of heat?
