Frozen water pipes???
Older houses always have issues. One issue that is nearly always present is that of frozen water pipes. Since the weather around here has been quite chilly (down right cold) there is no real surprise. The scary part is that frozen water in the lines has the capability of busting the pipes
There are things that must be done to ensure that pipes do not freeze.
Insulate all water pipes from cold moving air and keep them dry
Heater tapes wrapped around the pipes or a heated reflector lamp in dry enclosed space works great.
allowing the water to run at a slow constant drip this is cheaper than repairing it
Thaw out a frozen pipe by checking to see where the pipe is frozen at. Some plastic and copper pipes will split and flood and area when thawed out. In this case it is better to call a plumber.
an electric space heater placed around the frozen part or a hand held hair dryer can help to unthaw local frozen pipes.
