  • Any way you can put heat tape on your pipes? Thats what I have. I have the tape, let water drip, and then leave a cupboard door open so warm air gets near the pipes. ( my mom heard the last one helps so I listned to her)

  • The water was dripping, but the pipes still froze. We put some kind of insulation stuff on the pipes, but apparently that didn't help much either..

  • We had that last week. My husband put on the electric pipe tape that heats up just enough to keep the water flowing. You have to be careful that once they freeze they don't burst. You can take a blow dryer and use it on where the pipes enter the house.
