Dealing with frozen pipes in your church this winter

• Turn water supply off at the stop tap/valve
• Thaw along the pipe starting from the end nearest the tap
• Put hot water bottles or a thick cloth soaked in hot water over the frozen pipe or use and electric hairdryer at its lowest setting to thaw pipes – be careful not to warn them too quickly or they may burst
• Don’t use a blow lamp or any naked flame
• Don’t leave taps dripping or running. The water may not flush down the plug hole if the pipes below are frozen.
