Please note; most of this will seem repetitive, if you have read, "How to Thaw a Frozen Drain Pipe"
The task of thawing a frozen sewer begins with planning.
The first step to thaw a frozen sewer is to decide where you can easily access any portion of the sewer pipe to pour Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw into the pipe.
There are a few locations available in most dwellings, homes, and buildings.
Some people will pour Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw into the stink pipe on the roof. Others will pour it into a cheater vent if there is one. These two locations do not have a trap so there will be no need to use a plunger.
If you are going to use other locations then these are ( in order of easy access ) the bathroom sink, a kitchen sink, and a toilet. Some may want to use Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw in a bathtub or shower floor drain but they are the least preferred drains to use. DO NOT use Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw in a bathtub or shower.
Both a bathtub and a shower have a drain but both of these can be permanently stained. If a drain opener or drain cleaner has ever been used to clear a clogged drain at some point then the staining will be even greater. After many uses of these drains being flushed, drain cleaner residue is still strong enough to cause corrosive damage to these surfaces.
Therefore; Woodsmans International DOES NOT recommend using either a bathtub drain or a shower drain.
Most people will find a bathroom sink is easily accessible. It also happens to be the smallest drain pipe. This means that the trap beneath most bathroom sinks hold a lesser amount of water in it then a kitchen sink trap.
To begin here are the required steps:
1 - Invert your bottle of Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw and shake it vigorously like you would a can of paint.
2 - Whenever possible (but not necessary), remove safety seal and safely warm Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw 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 - Pour Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw into the bathroom sink.
4 - Use a plunger to force Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw beyond the trap. Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw will not thaw your frozen drain 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 Pipe Thaw on hand until the pipe is thawed. Remember that Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw 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.
