Know How To Thaw Frozen Pipes During The Storm
If the freezing temperatures caused by the cold spike cause the pipes in your home to freeze, it is important to thaw them immediately before they crack. Any water inside will expand and break the pipe, leading to a burst once the water thaws and is able to flow through them again.
Inspect your pipes regularly during the storm, and if you find any frozen sections immediately take measures to warm them up. One of the best ways to find a frozen pipe is to simply try to turn your water on and it trickles out.
Most likely the frozen section is near an exterior wall or where the water service enters the home through the foundation. Apply heat to the frozen pipe by wrapping it in a heating pad or with towels soaked in hot water. You can also use a hair dryer or space heater on the frozen pipe. Just make sure to not use a propane heater, blow torch, charcoal stove or a blowtorch. Any open flame can be dangerous.
Keep your faucets open while you are thawing out the pipe and take notice of how strong the water flow becomes as you heat the pipe. Once full water pressure is restored then you know it is properly thawed.
