Ridgid Pipe Thawing Kits
Help prevent severe damage and future leaks from frozen pipes with RIDGID® Pipe Thawing Kits. Heat frozen pipes without having to tear into walls or rip up flooring. Attach the clamps to either side of the frozen pipes and let the kit do the work for you. Both professionals and homeowners can keep these devices on hand during the cold winter months. These devices pass a low-voltage AC current through your metal pipes, so you don't have to dig up underground or embedded pipes to thaw them out individually
Electric pipe thawing kits eliminate the need for blowtorches. Arc welders are dangerous and should only be handled by experienced professionals. Additionally, these tools will work more quickly than using a hair dryer or heat lamp. This specialized equipment uses concentrated power and a streamlined design to protect your pipes and pipe fittings. This is also more convenient than other thawing methods, like feeding hot water through tubing directly up to the frozen section
You can adjust the output levels to thaw anywhere from 15 to 75 feet of pipe length. Ridgid pipe thawing kits can heat pipe 1/2 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Our kits will run on a standard 115-volt outlet.
If pipes or pipe joints have already expanded to the point of sustaining damage, ensure that you have Ridgid soldering tools on hand for repairs. Note that electric pipe thawing kits are not suitable for PVC or plastic pipes. Water should start to flow freely in most steel pipes within 10 minutes, and a bit longer with copper pipes. Look for flare fittings and Ridgid flaring tools when repairing or joining existing pipes.
Whether you are a professional or a homeowner, the winter months can wreak havoc on home plumbing when the temperatures dip below freezing. Our line of electric pipe thawing kits could help prevent leaking and even flooding as soon as a frozen line is suspected. Trust the entire line of Ridgid plumbing tools to complete your home repair and professional jobs quickly and efficiently.
