Our downstairs bath (above a crawlspace) has completely frozen. The toilet will drain put will not refill because of frozen pipe. The bathtub will not drain. We've tried boiling water and a plunger to no avail. The pipes are frozen so no shower at all - hot or cold.

Please help us with any tips for correcting this now. We are just above 0 degrees each morning and get to about 20 degrees at the high.

Thanks

Not Handy at all.....

Thanks Sylvan. I will go out tomorrow and buy the pipe tape to insulate. Another question if you don't mind... Will putting a space heater in the crawlspace overnight help defrost these pipes? One pipe has insulation wrapped around it and the others are bare.
