Im using a salamander heater to thaw out frozen pipes in a double wide, been running for 3 hrs. I still do not have water! Could the underground pipe be frozen,if so how do I fix this?

just keep heating it, if it is frozen underground heating will be the only way once unfrozen let one tap drip a bit to stop it from freezing again

My pipes may be frozen; cabin in the mountaines use infrequently but temperature set on 60 degrees...only a little water tricked out of the faucets upon arrival...turned on heato 70 degrees; is it likely...

in the water in the pipes is frozen it will be frozen all the way back to the tank or your water supply
one way to prevent freezing is to insulate the pipes properly with a quality pipe insulation product

Thawing frozen water pipes

Look underneath home and try to find/follow water supply pipe. If it is exposed you will probably have to wrap it with heated tape to prevent future freezing. When thawing pipe open a faucet in the home and keep an eye on the pipe. If there is a crack in the line, once the water starts to flow you will see it spraying/leaking out, and the pipe will have to be replaced. If there is no leakage, you are lucky.

My water pipes are frozen. there is no running water in doors. how do i thaw this safely?

Is this an air conditioner problem?
If not, open all faucets, all cabinet doors under the sinks, and allow the pipes to thaw slowly. Find your water source shut off valve.
See if you can find where the pipe is frozen. Do not use a propane torch. Use a hair dryer if you are not in standing water to heat the area of the pipe that is frozen. Once the water starts flowing at the faucets, allow it to run for a few minutes. The relatively warm water will melt any ice that may be forming in your pipes. Once you shut off the faucets, verify that you don't have water running anywhere - you are looking for broken pipes.

If you have found the area(s) where the pipe has frozen, insulate that area before there's a next time. If need be, add some self regulating heat tape before insulating the pipe. Good Luck

No water coming out of any faucets,should I leave faucets on?

Have you checked for a major leak in the line bringing the water to your house or under the house where the line comes in? Or is it a case of the pipes being frozen? Because you did say. If it is frozen pipes leave the faucets turned on half way, because when they thaw, you don't want to much air and water rushing out at one time and going places you don't want it to.

Water doesn't flow from the hot side. Was really cold last night. Is there a way to get it to flow?

Yes... the water pipe is probably frozen... take a hair dryer and focus the heat on the piping...moving it back and forth along the piping to thaw it out...

Hi there,any advice please on frozen water at all,no toilet,shower..can i use my central heating? forozen..

You will need to get to the pipes with a torch or heat gun and melt the ice out allot of times when the pipes thaw out you may have busted pipes with long cracks running down the pipe. The best way to handle this is to turn off the water to your house and inspect the pipes I would go and purchase some heat tape and cover all the pipes in exposed areas (crawl space, attic, and basement) and let the heat tape thaw out the pipes. after about an hour turn off all your inside valves ( tubes, shower, sinks and the cold water to the water heater) then turn your water back on and watch the meter at the street if it spins then you may have busted pipes.

1- Turn off water at the meter by the street.
2- Thaw out pipes with torch or use the heat tape.
3- Close all valves in house including cold water valve at the water heater.
4- Turn water back on at meter and mark on the meter where the hand is now then watch to see if the meter is turning.

The heat tape will keep you from freezing pipes in the future.

Hope this helps..............
