What Houzz contributors are saying:
Turn on the faucets. Turn on each affected faucet. Opening up the flow relieves pressure on the pipes — water expands when it freezes, which can make the pipe burst. Once the pipes start to thaw, the running water can help speed up the melting.
Add even more plumbing. Make your exposed pipes a special feature in the room by adding even more of them. Ask your plumber to install some to match the originals — they don’t have to be functional. The pipes will add pizzazz to the space, especially if they’re polished to a high shine. In this tiny powder room, the lustrous copper pipes are not only a sculptural feature, but they’ve been set against a dark background to really stand out.
