    Thanks see VC^.
    Will get it setup tomorrow. Had similar thoughts, but with all these grapes with propagators thought best too ask question.

    Thanks - Was thinking about the conduction properties of the water. Anyway you've answered my question and I do have the cotton scrap based carpet underlay, so that is a back stop answer if I don't get into town tomorrow.
