I spent a long period of time talking to Heating and A/C equipment experts and plumbers, even though I finally had my toilet thawed, and the pipes were wrapped with good heat tape
I walked into my bathroom just the other week, and I could not truly believe what I saw… The water in my toilet was basically frozen solid. I was afraid to use the toilet, because I was genuinely thinking it could end up splitting. I evaluated the bathroom that was in the kids room, and it wasn’t frozen in the least, so I chose to use that. Luckily I could also use the shower. I saw there was ice in the bottom of the shower stall, and I was definitely afraid to use it too. The kids were already all set for going to school, and I knew I would not be making it to work. I pulled out a space heating system I had in the basement, and put it in my bathroom. I then reached out to the Heating and A/C equipment corporation and a plumber. I had a small Heating and A/C system in my bathroom, and it must have died sometime in the middle of the night. When the Heating and A/C equipment worker called back I told them about the Heating and A/C equipment in the bathroom, and how I had ice in the shower, and the toilet bowl was completely frozen. They were sending a Heating and A/C equipment pro to the house, to look at the bathroom Heating and A/C equipment, even though I had to get a plumber in case some of the pipes were also frozen. I spent a long period of time talking to Heating and A/C equipment experts and plumbers, even though I finally had my toilet thawed, and the pipes were wrapped with good heat tape. They told me I should be fine, even though I needed to get some insulation in the outside wall of the bathroom sooner than later. I was lucky the pipes hadn’t frozen long before this actual time.
