To thaw them out again when frozen, I use those cheap clipon lamps and replace the bulb with a heat lamp. You'll have to move it down the pipe about a 1-2 every 20 minutes or so until enough of it is thawed out that it starts flowing again. I have a heat gun too, it works even better but you stay under there and hold it by hand to use it.

I put a halogen work light under the house and so far, so good.
I've checked it a couple of times today and it is noticeably warmer under the house. Also have faucets trickling.

Got my alarm set to get up every 2 hrs to run all faucets. Heaters in both pump houses should help. Cold water temp 40.5 deg. Ambient temp 8 deg. Feels like temp, he!! If I know but it’s cold.

My meter is ground level. It froze in less then an hour just now. Had to make a TP over it and stick my Mr Heater in it. Water back going already. Don’t mind the small fire I started with tarp either lol

I guess I will stay up all night and run the hot and cold water thru them pipes as well as the toilet. So far so good. 3 burners on the stove to keep warm by circulating the heat with a floor fan. Watching tv all night. Lights went out for a couple minutes and came back on. No snow.....28 degrees out now.....winds 21 NNW - 31 MPH GUSTS. I will be glad when this mess is over with. KEEP WARM FOLKS......
