I had the pollytron version of the leak in cold weather variety. I am throwing them out. Always having water pressure problems blowing out the continually leaking gaskets. They worked well for a few years , after that is was replace something all the time. Got sick of the water bill/electric bill . I am no where near as cold as you are but I have never had a mirafount freeze if the balls are loose in the holes.sw said:We have installed some of the new Ritchies that are plastic with a valve that will let you run a dribble of water at all times so nothing freezes. They do not need electricity, the water movement keeps them open and you can increase the flow during really cold weather. You just need to have an overflow that goes into the ground for the excess. They will have ice on them in the mornings of cold weather but it is easy to push out. We threw out the Mirafounts as they were always freezing up and you had to teach everybody to use them. These Ritchies with the water dribbling attracts animals to them as they hear the water.
