Curo lifehacks: Frozen pipes



No water coming out of your pipes? If they're frozen, try this...

  • Open the tap attached to the frozen pipe, and open nearby working taps to a trickle.
  • Use a hair dryer or heat gun to gently warm the pipe which leads to the tap, starting from the end which is nearest to the tap. SAFETY FIRST: take care when using electrical appliances anywhere near water.
  • Heat the surrounding air using an electric heater.
  • As an alternative, try wrapping the pipe in hot towels.
  • If drains or waste outlets are frozen add salt to these.
