    Default Looking for a solution to freezing pipes

    My synagogue has an annual issue with pipes freezing some are below slab others are on an outside wall. (this is a common problem with churches as well)

    Yes I know - it never should have been done that way.

    Since the building is empty for a couple of days a week chances for a freeze up increase and I have thawed them twice in the last week

    I have thought about connecting a small circulating pump from the hot water feed to cold water with an isolation valve (connecting this permanent, possibly with temperature controls) but I do not know if this is legal also need to find a small pump something around 1/10 gal per minute.

    I am also open to some other ideas

    The value of experience is not in seeing much, but in seeing wisely.
