Hello all,
The water pump for our barn has frozen up and we are worried about hand-carrying water every now and then. Does anyone here know any tips to unfreeze the pumps and pipes?? I found few tips online ( http://www.brothersplumbing.ca/blog/frozen-pipe/pipes-freeze-brothe... ) but I was not able to completely unfreeze it. Now we don't have adequate water for our household works too. It will be of great help if you could share some suggestions based on your experience in unfreezing the pumps and pipes. Thanks in advance.

Are you talking about a hydrant (that connects to a hose) or the actual electric well pump that supplies water ?

How to Troubleshoot a Frozen Well Pump

Turn on a water faucet. In some cases, if the pipe is not completely frozen you can still get a little water through the pipes. ...
Look for any visible frost on the exterior of the pipes or the pump. ...
Turn a space heater on near the pump. ...
Wrap the pipes leading in and out of the pump. ...
Test the water again.

Regards your Milton, worker grademiners company.
