The pipes in my bathroom are still frozen. :(:(:(

So no water comes out. The toilet works but nothing else.

At first it was the cold that didnt come out and the warm stopped and now nothing. Been like this since early morning.

I called a plumber and he acted like there's nothing he can do to thaw it and that it will melt when it's sunny during the day. But it's frozen still!

I turned up the heat all day to 80 but had to turn it down for us to sleep so we don't die from the heat lol.

Hahaha. Duh. I'm glad you got that!

Quoting mom2ljh:

Not if she doesn't have any water.

Quoting LucyHarper:

If waters not going into your toilet, you can pour it in.

Quoting Hyman:

What? ... Why don't I understand what you want me to do! Lol

Quoting LucyHarper:

Dump water in the back of the toilet whenever you flush. Thats all you really need the water plumbing for, so you can do it yourself until it thaws out.

Is it anything like a double wide? Usually in a house turning up the heat will help, but if the pipes are in a crawl space below the house..well then you will have to get under and thaw them yourself either with a heater or blow, but needs to be done... hopefully none of the pipes have burst. Is your water heater in the house or do you have to access iit from the outside?

Quoting Hyman:

House. It is not a new house we moved here in June so it's our first winter here

Quoting daughteroftruth:

Is this a house or a trailer?

Did you open your cabinets beneath the sink to allow warm air in? Mine were a little frozen in the kitchen this morning, but I let the cold drip for awhile then turned it on full blast, and then the hot.

Idk how your pipes are but maybe boil some water Nd slowly pour it down the drains it may get the pipes enough to thaw the others with a try :(

Yeah, we've had our pipes pop sucked.

Quoting Hyman:

I wish I would've known that trick before!

Quoting Bauxite-17:

When it thaws...try turning on the hot faucet to drip, so it stays moving.


Thats what we have to do when its cold.
