Default Carpet python breeding question

I have done a lot of reading regarding carpet python breeding. The thing that I can't find is when to start pairing them up. I know that some people cool their snakes and some don't, does it make a difference to when you start pairing? Do you generally just leave the male with the female until she is obviously gravid or do you do several short visits? I don't intend to cool my lot, so any advice would be appreciated.
My jungle jag female is just short of 6ft and 1.6kg presently so I'm hoping she will be good to go nxt season but there's no rush. I just want to be properly educated about the process before I start.

If you're not cooling then just chuck him in November/December time on a week on week off basis unless you see him breeding her then let him finish!

Another question, what size tubs do you use for your hatchlings?
