General topic:  My pipes are frozen, what can I do?

 

The entire process to thawing your frozen pipe is to simply get enough Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw into your frozen drain, frozen water pipe, frozen sewer, or frozen septic pipes or frozen septic tank as soon as you can.  This will lessen the time it takes to thaw or defrost your frozen pipe and will greatly reduce the stresses caused from having a frozen pipe.

 

So...

 

The first thing to do if your pipe is frozen is to determine which pipe is frozen and to read the appropriate link below for greater detail on how to thaw your pipe.

 

Most building have one water feed pipe or water supply line bring water into it, plus; one sewer pipe or septic line removing all of the waste water.  That means that one pipe ( the water supply line ) is generally full of water, while the sewer pipe or septic line or the sewage pipes are generally completely empty.

 

Their are safety hazards dealing with either the water feed or the sewage waste pipe.

 

With water pipes there is the possibility of water at high pressure, water spillage, water clean up, water damage, etc.  Safety glasses should always be worn whenever anyone is dealing with plumbing.  Since many of the frozen pipes are in either dirty locations or cold locations or both, be certain to have a good pair of work gloves on hand.

 

Here is a partial list of some of the tools that may be required to help you get your pipe thawed.

You will not need ALL of these items and tools even though the list above seems rather large.  Once you select one of the links below you will see what items and tools are generally required for those more specific frozen pipes.

 

Let's begin;

 

The first step in using Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw is to invert the bottle and shake it vigorously for a minute or more just like you would shake a can of paint.  Now it is ready to be used.

 

It is always recommended when ever possible, that you safely warm Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw prior to pouring it into your frozen line or frozen pipe, regardless on which situation resembles your own.  Always remove the spill proof safety seal prior to warming Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw.  If you choose to warm Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw, then warm it with the safety seal removed and only warm it until it is nearly hot to the touch.  Warming Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw serves one or two purposes depending on your situation.

 

Since you will be pouring Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw inside of your pipe, the additional heat which is introduced into the pipe will assist Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw with thawing your frozen pipe sooner.

 

Warming Liqui-Fire Pipe Thaw also means that for those who are working in a cold environment will have something nice and warm to warm up their hands.  This reduces the chance of injury and makes the task of thawing your pipe slightly less frustrating and cold.
