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.
