A welder can use current from a welding machine to melt the water in frozen pipes. My friend had a welder come and melt his frozen pipes last week. They were solid from the curb to the meter.

"Cause then I'd have 2 one-eyed ******* in bed with me at night"

National Grid had turned her off for non-payment, she says she overspent on Christmas and by the time she got it turned back on...

Is this a common problem? Aren't pipes usually insulated? It gets friggen cold here and I've never heard of anyone having frozen pipes (Including those with old houses like my g/fs house circa 1905)

She probably has a working furnace and hotwater tank in her basement to keep things above freezing. My daughters furnance is in the house and the hotwatet tank was off. Its probably not enough to keep things warm enough down there. Insulation only delays freezing hence the heat tape I'll be installing.
