      Plastic pipes I dont know if you can thaw them out with machine, but if they are frozen in ground they are probaly broke, have a Plumbing co. digthem up and when they are done have them insulate them it might help later on, I would check with Co. that does that kind of work , thawing pipes and ask them.

      The only way you can thaw plastic pipes out underground is with a steamer.

      Many cities up in our northern parts of the United States and some drain cleaning companies have steam geneators with hose and nozzles to thaw frozen storm sewers out.

      The steamer will work on plastic water and sewer pipes but; the service person has tobe very careful not to get to close to the pipe when it is incerted into the ground.
