Pipes that are on outside walls, under sinks in cabinets and outside hose bibs are most susceptible to becoming frozen. When these pipes freeze no water can get through. Most people think that all frozen pipes burst, this is not necessarily true. The average burst pipe can cost a homeowner around $5,000. To thaw frozen pipes you can either call your plumber who will come equipped with a thawing machine or attempt to do it yourself. Below are the steps to take when attempting to thaw the pipe yourself.
If a pipe burst during the thaw process you should immediately call your plumber to locate the leak and make an adequate repair to the pipe.
