Bad Heating Design/Install

Of the years I have seen countess fire protection systems freeze.  The main reason for these freeze ups is poor design/installation.

Below is a dry pipe system, with an obvious wet pipe feed.  The feed is wrapped in insulation.

Poor heating design.  Riser is located inside this closet, see photo below.

Placement of the electric heater (below) may be sub-optimal.

Temporary heater?

Another temporary space heater, below.  The riser photographed below has frozen numerous times.
