I used a hose fitting connected to my hot water line from my utility room. It has the benefit of being fairly close to the septic tank and offered heated water. Hot water is not necessary, but will speed up the process of clearing the ice blockage. I did limit the temperature of my hot water to 110 ℉ to help avoid heat damage to the PVC sewer pipe. Most drain and sewer PVC pipe is rated for a maximum of 140 ℉.

Knowing the temperature limitation of PVC, it may be a good idea to avoid thawing services that use steam to clear pipes as the heat from the steam can melt the pipes.
