We have a similar (although not lake) water situation in a similar (northern NY) area. We've just ordered a mineral insulated, in-pipe heating system which works in below freezing weather. The company name is Pyrotenax and the product is the Retrofit Sureflow. If the lake you refer to is Lake Champlain, near Plattsburg, call Terry at Hulbert Brothers.
: I draw water from a 60 foot lake line that comes out of the ground just past the waterline and runs along the lake bottom (10 feet down) from there. We will be getting city water next year, but I am concerned that we might freeze this winter. Is there something I can do in the meantime? We did move in this year when the lake was frozen and we had no water troubles (miracle?). I live in northern New York.
