Consider wrapping heat-tape around the exposed section of pipe and then insulating around that. http://www.homedepot.ca/product/15-f...g-cable/909328
If all else fails, just keep the water running all the time.
My situation is that my cabin is off the grid. I use a generator and solar panels to charge the battery banks, then an inverter, but only part time.
The reason I'm thinking about the reflectix is, if the pipe does freeze, I can access it if need be. Originally, I was thinking about building a box around it and using expanding foam to fill in the space, but I'm concerned about its effectiveness.
Plus, if I have to take off the foam, it will be a major trip. So, for this reason, reflectix seemed to be a good alternative. I just don't know enough about this stuff, and winter is already starting to set in.
