Wow thats old school
But no I'm talking about "But don't Have" It's a boiler set up in a box truck Seen it done in Alaska They feed a heavy duty hose with the end cut off down the sewers to thaw them open with out jetting hundreds of gallons of water coming back at them no flooding

we have very little snow this year . so lots of frozen pipes. our heated jetter is key . before we had it we would use pex ,feed it to the ice and use the h/w from the house . it dose not take much hot water to open a line.

I just used a hand rod with a garden hose taped,to it with a stream nozzle. Cold water gets through the ice pretty quick, never seen the need for hot water. Now I use my little electric jetted with a nozzle that has three forward offset sprays. You do not need a lot of flow or pressure to melt the ice.

Just received my Eel ice cutter.

It's larger than I expected and looks like it's from the Medieval ages.

I am going to have to look into one, we had a mild winter this year but next year could be different.
