Toilet froze this morning, I tried the mud shark trick but wouldn't work luckily I had my harbor freight double action heat gun with the compass in the stock.

So I've cut the water off to the softener in the garage that caused the problem. Cut the water off at the main and wait for the thaw on Friday?

Okay really silly idea. Let me know if this has any prayer of working. Hot water lines are running strong and hot. Cold water line is frozen in garage, upstream of sink.

What would happen if I took the hot water line running up to the faucet and connected it to the cold water line at the wall? Bypassing the faucet and putting the hot water directly into the cold water line. Since the faucet is disconnected there would be no valve except for the shutoff valves under the sink.

I'm thinking the hot water line would energize the cold water line up to the frozen section, and it may have a chance of melting the ice.

Any chance this would work, or should I just wait until Friday?

The water tower up the street is spewing water out it’s side. I think they have a bigger “frozen” pipe than any of us. Hahaha.

That will make a nice frozen waterfall.

my water is out too, at least we have power though, so far, is there a way to tell if my pipes are frozen or if the city is having issues on their side? or both? I live in a modern brick home and supposedly have those freeze proof faucets. Not sure if that makes a difference or not in this weather?

Should I just leave the taps open to give the water in the pipes room to expand?

I stink at plumbing.

Hot water in attic out also. Have two heaters up there and can't find the frozen section. Spent four hours up there yesterday with a hair dryer to no avail. Funny thing was I carried a thermometer up there and the temp was 40. Can't figure out why it froze at that temp.

I thought we were good, my wife was in the shower for about 5 minutes, turned the flow down to wash her hair (can't figure why) and it just shut off. Her sink right by the shower works fine, hot and cold, mine 3 feet away froze on both. Put a heater under my sink as that is where the main header is behind the cabinet and got the shower back to working, my faucet will flow a small stream of hot and cold but not full flow. I think the freeze knocked some gunk off of the lines and plugged up the works. I will wait till the weather gets back to normal before I start taking thinks apart though.
