OOPs! Frozen Toilet

Picked the Old Horse From Charlotte last week - it was 78 deg there, Headed back to Indy and weather turned nasty and Cold
Pulled into a rest area and Dumped the Water Heater/ Opened up the drain lines and blew out all of the faucets- Just forgot one thing - missed the lines to the toilet- Yep ! Lines froze up the day after I returned home.
Heated up the bathroom to like 80 deg and found the Vacuum Breaker behind the toilet Split and the hand held rinse hose broke off too.
Dummy Me ! Parts on the way .

You have my sympathies!! I did that with my water heater. When it came out it looked just like an Alien burst out of it. Never forgot to drain my water heater after that.

If Vacuum Breaker and spray hose were broken then

Water inlet valve should be broken also


All water drains from vacuum breaker at end of flush...that is what puts water back into bowl.

The Flush valve appears to be intact, There was 3 in of ice in the toilet- I put a space heater on the flush valve as it was frozen solid- after thawing I removed the inlet line and very little water came out- then i pushed down the handle and water came out of the inlet on the Flush Valve- Temps were up into the 40's so I hooked up my air hose @ 40 psi re-connected the inlet line --pushed down the handle and air was leaking from the Vacuum breaker- it was split, So for now I'll leave the Flush Valve as is.
Lesson Learned !
