How funny, my husband just ran hot water down the sink drain in the bathroom because the toilet was sluggish in its flushing this morning!

Thanks for your feedback. I was away for a week and when I got back the main drain to the septic system was frozen. The pros who thawed the drain opened the 'elbow' cap, drained the standing water in the drains (since I had done the hot water thing for several hours) and then melted the ice with a hose. Time: 20 minutes Cost: $275...ouch! The good thing is now I know how to do it! Expensive lesson!
