    I had my hot water pipes freeze(plastic pipes), thawed them and installed heat wrap. Checked for leaks and none found. Since they thawed when I turn the water off on all faucets, hot and cold, it kind of dribbles to a stop. before the freeze it shut off "instantly". Does this mean there is air in the pipes? What can I do to correct the problem? Thanks in advance

    Don't think it would be an air problem . Maybe freezing loosened some junk in the pipes & now its in the faucet .

    Thats what I thought first, but then realized that its on all faucets and the freeze happened after the hot water heater and it the dribble happens on both hot and cold water?

    Check the aerators for debris.
