Frozen pipes are often a problem in Alaska, but Northern Utility Services has developed methods for thawing almost any water line. Our team of water professionals knows the inconvenience of frozen pipes. We have the tools and experience to thaw your frozen pipe safely and easily.
Metal or Plastic – We Can Thaw It
The most common method for thawing copper or steel lines is using a high amperage power source to heat the pipe. However, this method only works on metal piping. Many homes are now plumbed with plastics that cannot be thawed by conventional methods. To ensure that we can serve any customer in any situation, Northern Utility Services has developed a hot water jet capable of thawing most water or sewer lines quickly and easily. This method works on both metal and plastic pipes.
