How to thaw frozen septic pipes?
1 - Shake Liqui-Fire vigorously.
2 - Whenever possible, remove safety seal and safely warm Liqui-Fire prior to using. ( hot, not boiling ) For your safety, use a pair of kitchen oven mitts or an equivalent hand protection when handling hot materials.
3 - Determine the best location of your septic pipe and sewage system to pour Liqui-Fire into. This could be any one of these access locations:
The main sewer stack or stink pipe on the roof.
The bathroom sink. Use a plunger in the sink to push Liqui-Fire beyond the trap so it enters the pipe below.
The kitchen sink. Use a plunger in the sink to push Liqui-Fire beyond the trap so it enters the pipe below.
The toilet. Toilets have a built in trap so use a plunger to push Liqui-Fire beyond the trap so it enters the pipe below.
The exterior clean out can be used if the cleanout is above the frozen section of the down grade of the pipe.
4 - Use a plunger to force Liqui-Fire beyond the trap. Liqui-Fire will not thaw your frozen septic pipe if it is sitting in the trap instead of beyond the trap and in the frozen pipe it is intended to thaw.
5 - Repeat in 4 hours if necessary. It is recommended to have an additional Liqui-Fire on hand until the pipe is thawed. Remember that Liqui-Fire is weakened slightly when it mixes with the additional standing waste water.
6 - In most sewer environments the sewer pipe will completely empty without any notice once the ice blockage has been thawed.
