Drain to what? Sink, shower, toilet, tub or everything?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

Just to the tub. Everything else is working.

Does your house have a crawl space or a basement. Do you have access?

OK. Get a temporary clamp on light that you can use a high wattage bulb or a heat lamp and direct the light (heat) to the drain. This will send heat into the tub drain and piping and help thaw it.
