              No I'm in Vancouver Canada doesn't get too cold here. This model is a little different than the ridgid. Easier to put on pipe and also has a thermostat on it. But its in C not F on the surface of the pipe it went down to -30C.

                      I bought the freeze bags years ago. Unfortunately not real efficient as it takes truckloads of gas. Big $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$..


                      This looks like a real efficient system, wish I could see it used.

                        The one thing I like about it is that as long as you keep the machine running it keeps the line frozen. If you run out of gas and you haven't finished your job you're in trouble. I'm sure there are you tube videos on this. When I freeze the pipe I use a spray bottle and spray the pipe and the heads. Once I get a ice block going I know that the pipe is frozen.
