Woodford water risers

Merry Christmas friends!

Quick question, we moved a home into a lot without installing the heat probe in the Woodford water riser.

We have heat tape and insulation around the water line that connects to the Woodford.

We are in Montana.

Will we be OK without the heat probe installed?

In order to install the heat probe - in told I need to drill a hole through the home’s floor?

Most of the dozen that I haven’t replaced yet don’t have working heat probes and they don’t freeze with a good tape on the line coming out of it.
