|OK New Orleans Saints Women's Jersey , I know you want to grab the portable propane torch and fire up that frozen pipe in your crawl space. This is the most dangerous practice to solve this problem because an open flame in a tight space, coming in contact with wood, insulation paper, plastic piping & plastic wire coatings is a recipe for a disaster. Pipes and wires run through small holes in the framing and in vertical voids of the structure. The torch user can inadvertently send super-hot gases into these voids (condensing the gases which create a greater heating effect on the gases, remember our thermodynamics from above). Unbeknownst to the torch user, a fire is started in this void out of their view and will race up vertically in the void.
The prudent pipe unfreezer person resists the temptation to use the torch & confidently grabs an electric heat gun or hair blow dryer and patiently unfreezes the pipe. Be careful with these electric heat guns as they throw off substantial heat and if held close enough to wood framing members or other flammables can start a fire just like a torch. Keep a safe distance when operating these tools and refer to the operating manual for safe distance recommendations.
Another safe method is to create a sealed cavity or space around the frozen pipe and add a low level heat source to this cavity for gradual thawing of the pipe. For example, if you had a crawl space that had a frozen pipe & you could somehow create a cavity around the pipe with no wind infiltration (somewhat sealed), you could do something as simple as adding a relatively safe heat source (a lamp or drop light) to this cavity which would eventually heat up this small environment enough to safely & slowly thaw the pipe.
Another safe practice is to wrap the frozen pipe with an electric heat tracer. The heat tracer will gradually thaw the pipe. The heat tracer would often times need to be fed by an extension cord from a more remote power source (outlet)
What will happen if you just wait for the pipe to thaw naturally?
Hmmm Detroit Lions Authentic Jersey , that’s the gambling man (or woman) approach. I like your moxie & I can appreciate gambling as an activity as it’s very exhilarating when you win, but when you lose…not so good, right? One thing to consider and understand is what occurs during the freezing & thawing process.
Water freezes, and if you remember what we all learned in grade school about the qualities of water you will recall that water expands when it changes from a liquid state to a solid state. That expansion of water within a contained environment (a pipe) can cause the pipe to split. This splitting or cracking of the pipe, or the pipe fitting, is the risk with a frozen pipe. Not every frozen pipe will result in a water leak but be aware that you probably won’t know if the pipe is leaking until the pipe thaws by, manually by heating it (heat gun), or if the environment around the pipe is heated (naturally or artificially). The water in the pipes are pressurized so one can imagine that once the thawing reaches a certain point the water will begin to flow rapidly through any break in the pipe or fitting which will leave you minimal time to prevent an even larger water damage condition. A safe practice would be to depressurize the affected pipe by turning the appropriate valve off. Which valve to turn off is anyone’s guess as every situation is different. You could turn the water main off Denver Broncos Authentic Jersey , which would be kind of a catch all safety measure as all domestic water pipes eventually get their pressure from the main water supply. However, the heating pipes have water within a contained separate system that will have boiler pressure separate from the water main pressure, if a heating pipe is affected, the water feed to the boiler will need to be shut off and the boiler pressure will need to be bled off before thawing the pipe.

People have tried all sorts of ways to lose weight in their never ending battle with their expanding midsections. There are fad diets that seem to pop up weekly, metabolism boosting pills and diet supplements, and all sorts of 锟紽at Busting锟?exercise machine being pedaled on TV infomercials. Many times we get taken in by all the hype only to find out that what is being advertised does not quite mesh with reality. The truth is that if we give our body the nutrients that it needs by eating healthy foods that promote weight loss our chances of successfully losing weight are much greater.What happens when we eat healthy nutritious food? Our bodies respond by increasing our metabolism, which in turn helps to promote weight loss. Now while this is rather simplified and weight loss can require a little more commitment as far as exercising and eating the right foods Dallas Cowboys Authentic Jersey , the fact is that eating right is the best way if you want to increase your metabolism and lose weight.Understanding how our body's use and store energy is an important point to understand when it comes to metabolism. Our cells metabolize energy from the protein, carbohydrates and fats that we eat. These energy sources come in many different forms and our body's metabolism is affected by what forms we get them from.In the case of fats our bodies have very little trouble converting them directly into fat stores for future use. Because fats tend to get sent directly to fat storage the body doesn't use much energy, or calories, quickly storing them away as fat. The majority of most people's diets consist of refined or processed foods. These are known as simple carbohydrates and they usually come from foods that include refined sugars. The body tends to use little energy processing these refined sugars and easily turns them into fat. Eating to much refined sugars is known to lead to insulin resistance, which is a affliction in whi.
