Thaw metal pipes quickly and safely with the General Hot Shot HS-320 Pipe Thawer.
The Hot Shot Pipe Thawer works best on a single run of metal pipe used for water supply. The pressure behind the frozen section of pipe with an open faucet at the other end greatly increases the speed of thawing. (See picture above)
The thawing speed refers to the amount of time it takes to thaw the film of water against the wall of the pipe, the water pressure will take over from there and melt the rest of the ice.
