Frozen Pipe Remedies
The first and most important thing to do if you recognize that you have frozen pipes are to turn off your water supply. Without doing so it will continue to build up pressure, leading to a broken or leaking pipe. Once you have turned it off, determine if you or your spouse has a hair-dryer. If you do not, do not worry. The most popular option is boiling hot water and pouring it on your pipes themselves. Do not try and use a propane torch. This is extremely dangerous for you and your housemates. With either of these approved methods, you can attempt to thaw out the pipes. First, open up the faucet. Though you previously turned off the water, this will allow any steam coming from your ice melt to escape instead of build up within the pipes. Always start at the faucet itself and work your way back and away.

Frozen Drain Pipe Repair
If you are dealing with a drain pipe, there is a different execution. Your best bet here will be hot water, a funnel, and a garden hose. Run your garden hose through your drain pipe, slowly and carefully. Once you cannot go any further, you have reached the location of the ice. Pour the hot water through. The hot water will reach its intended target much quicker and easier. Remember, you can always call your local plumbers to take care of the thawing for you. In fact, it is always best to ensure you have a plumber’s number on hand in case something goes awry. We have high-quality frozen pipe repair services and can get your plumbing up and running.
