PIPES

 

Leaking hot water pipes

 

Take some iron borings or fillings and mix them with enough vinegar to form a paste like mixture.

Dry the pipe thoroughly fill up the cracks when the leakage is found and keep the pipe dry until the paste has become quite hard.

 

 

TO PREVENT SINK PIPES CLOGGING

 

A lump of soda laid upon the sink pipe   down which waste water passes will prevent the clogging of the pipe with grease.

 

TO THAW FROZEN PIPES

 

Turn off the water at the main, turn the tap on full and pour boiling water over the pipe.

If this is not sufficient to melt the ice. Fill some bags with sand, heat them in the oven, then pack them round the pipe and leave them as long as they remain hot or until the ice melts.

 

TO RID SNOW FROM YOUR PATH

 

If you have had any heavy snow and have No Salt, but have a Coal Fire, why not put down HOT ASH from the bottom of your fire and put it down on the path, and see it Melt away.

Also make sure you do not put down by your car, as it can Melt your car tyres, it will also leave you with some grip when walking on it.
