  • Ridgid KT-190 pipe thawing machine

    Does anyone have any experience with this machine? We just bought one and it should be here next week. Any feedback would be appreciated!

    Keep the cables off of any carpets in a room in which you may be working. The cables get hot enough to permanently deform (read: melt) the carpet fibers.

      Do your best to isolate where the freeze up is to keep the run (the distance between the two clamps) as short as possible. Short runs equal faster thawing times. Some times you'll have long runs of frozen pipe, depending on location and outside air temps. It is faster to thaw 3 ten foot sections than 1 30 foot section.
