Hi again.

I need to put a washer and dryer outside in an unheated space in North Carolina. Temperatures occasionally drop below freezing. How can I protect the washer from freezing? Is heat tape on the water supply and discharge sufficient? Do I need to protect the drum or pipes inside the washer?

Also, is Pex a good choice for supply lines? I understand freezing water will not rupture Pex.

Thanks,

Glenn
