What happens if someone's pipes are so frozen, no water comes out of any faucets in the house??

There is no visible water coming out anywhere. But its going to freeze again tonite. Its a clients home and not sure what to do...or if there is anything to even do if nothings happened.

Turn the heat up and open the cabinets where the sinks are. That?s all you can do.

Turn the heat up and open the cabinets where the sinks are.

And let all the faucets inside the house drip a little.

I did!! But I can't get a drip from anywhere in the house now and it's plenty warm inside.

Just leave the faucets open a little. The pipes probably froze somewhere and by opening the faucets some, will give the water a place to start running some when they start to thaw.
Good luck ... it sounds like an outside pipe may have frozen off. Might try a blow dryer at the main valve coming into the house, but what do I know. That's the route I would take.
I have wrapped all my outside pipes where they come into the house and all outside faucets, and let EVERY faucet drip last night and so far, so good. Fingers crossed.

I did the same, (my friend did it to be honest) and I let the faucets drip in every sink, too- no problem so far!

Now experienced "brown water" coming out of the faucets. It looked like weak coffee. I opened all the indoor faucets run for about 25-30 minutes and they are now clear. Then flushed all the toilets a couple of times.
I'm not that far from Kings Manor where, apparently, CoH was working on some water lines.

Neighbors in Elm Grove had frozen pipes this morning. It tool half the day for them to defrost enough to get water through.
