I'm too idle to watch it all.

The company I was training at as a technician apprentice had a nice line
in producing low voltage transformers used to pass a current through
buried frozen water pipes:-)

Wouldn't do much with blue poly now!


Perhaps you could use High Voltage instead. Ice is the poorer conductor
wrt water, so power would be dissipated in the ice preferentially, ideal
really.
