mikeR1100R Posted January 26, 2013 Share Posted January 26, 2013 With our week-long cold snap here in CT last week I had a pipe which supplied the upstairs baseboard radiators freeze. It thawed luckily with no damage and heat was restored in less than a day. I do not know where the pipe froze although I suspect it was in the "stylish" overhang where our master bath juts out over the deck. I have heard that the addition of a propylene glycol-based antifreeze can prevent this from occurring. Has anyone here ever done this? How hard is it to do yourself? I have a rudimentary understanding of oil-fired hot water baseboard heating systems and have done basic plumbing repairs and installations. Internet has not been too helpful but maybe I have not looked in the right place. Link to comment
