Frozen sink

They tell you to leave the water running

Since one of the bathrooms is not heated at the shop I work at, we left the water dripping last night so the pipes wouldnt freeze again. Did not seem to help, the dripping water formed an icicle then plugging up the faucet. So the pipes most likely froze again now the water has stopped.

We also left water running in both bathrooms, but still got frozen pipes. Spent 7 hours getting them unfrozen, then spent 2 hours thawing myself out. I dont ever want to go thru that again, we have the water running a lot faster now, no probs.

Has that sink ever been cleaned?

You needed to let it run at bit faster. If it's too slow, it will freeze, as you discovered.
