Some helpful tips when dealing with a frozen pipe include:

  • If you wish to thaw a frozen pipe, you may be able to do so with a hand-held dryer. However, be sure to avoid using electrical appliances while standing in water as you could get electrocuted.
  • Open the tap to allow steam from the melting ice to escape.
  • Do not start thawing in the middle as the steam from the melting ice can cause the pipe to burst. Instead, thaw pipe starting from the faucet going backward toward the other end.
  • Never try to pour hot or boiling water directly on the pipe as this often results in pipe burst.
  • Never try to thaw a frozen pipe with an open flame. Not only will it damage the pipe but it could start a structure fire.
