Re: Fucking pipes are frozen....
You silly Texans just throw these houses up without any consideration to the weather....

As hot as it gets down here, why aren't they all brick and adobe houses?

As often as you get freezing weather, why aren't pipes buried or insulated better?

I swear I never saw frozen water pipes in Alaska. I've seen a lot of ruptured pipes from the ground heaving, but that is it.


 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 821633



I live in a 40+ years old brick house...
but it is pier and beam, so it has an
unheated crawlspace... I covered the
crawlspace vents and opened the cabinets
during the night... that works for temps
in the mid-20s... but tonight it is supposed
to get down into the lower teens !!

Re: Fucking pipes are frozen....
Just wait until tomorrow and the next day if you want to see frozen pipes.

Heat pump blowing coolish air here and it is supposed to go down to -6 tonight.

Getting out electric blanket just in case.

Re: Fucking pipes are frozen....
When temps get down to freezing,for a day or so,is not so much the problem as when it gets below 0 for many days in a row and then with wind chills to -10-15.Have had to thaw certain pipes now for 4 days or so. A bottle of gaterade on the toilet float works to keep water running enough. Wind chills that can get to any under insulated pipes is your enemy.A hair drying works best but anything you use when it is -10 or colder outside is a bitch to deal with. I love winter time but I hate winter time. With up coming temps tonite and tomorrow of low single digit with wind gust 20mph+ I am crossing my fingers because you can only do so much. I had bottles of water,along a not so good insulated outside wall (inside the building) freeze the other night. Breaking out the Jack to help keep warm tonite.

I'm not used to this dripping faucet routine.

Do you have to allow all the faucets in the house to drip ?

What if it is below freezing for days... do you allow them
to drip for days ?

How about faucets in the bathtub and shower ?

What about the commode ?

 Quoting: Dr Doom



Coming from someone who knows what they are talking about because i live in a very cold climate..you dont let your faucets DRIP..you let them RUN just enough so it doesnt bother you..a drip will do nothing to keep the water from freezing up in cold weather..only running water will do that..just turn your faucet on enough to let the water run continuously plus some..

I had them all going on a steady drip... See, I saw the exposed nature of the plumbing in this house a few weeks ago... I just didn't think that they needed to fully run when it was just going down to the upper 20s....

I think I might go under and try out a hair dryer.

Like i said, no drip not even a steady one will stop water from freezing your pipes, let the water run freely in a little stream from the faucet.

No, I am pretty sure the cause of my problems was my mother smoking crack while pregnant for me....

I don't see how they froze either... But they did. Texas is such a pussy version of stronger states like Montana, Wyoming, Oregon, and Alaska.

Turn off your water, and thaw out the pipes. If you leave the water on, you may bust your water pipes. This is especially true for PVC.

Re: Fucking pipes are frozen....
Ok, if you live in a town where they supply the water it also makes a difference in how deep your water lines are buried in the ground where they come into the house.
In many southern states they do not bury their water lines very deep, in that case the water could be frozen underground in the lines that feed your house as well as inside your house.
If they are frozen underground from the city or town supplied water then your screwed and only the water company or city can unthaw them.
The colder it gets the deeper the frost settles into the ground, if the frost freezes the ground where the pipes are then it makes the pipes freeze also. A long cold spell can cause the frost to really sink into the ground many feet.

Why don't you turn the heat on? It keeps my pipes from freezing.
 Quoting: BRIEF AND TO THE POINT


It gets cold enough, even pipes in a heated house will freeze. All of our water lines are on the northwest corner of the house, guess where the wind is coming from - the northwest.

I've turned up the heat a little bit to keep our water flowing.

Yes, responding to the last two posters, Texas is backasswards....

Wind from Northwest. Main Valve and pipes in Northwest corner.

Although, there is copper pipe running all underneath this house. I'm sure it is all frozen. I just wont be showering for a few days.... Buckets of water for flushes.

Actually, I could shower at a neighbors place.

If you get a 5 gal. bucket of water and keep it in the bathroom you can pour it into the back of the toilet tank and fill it up to the regular line and then you can flush the toilet. But you have to keep filling the back up to use it.
