cold water pipe froze, then this happened



My cold water pipes had frozen. They work now. But what was weird was that when I drew hot water from the bathroom sink, the bathtub faucet (in that same room), which I had turned all the way to cold, also ran a little. How is that possible? When I ran the hot it also dribbled a little. When I stopped running the hot, it stopped too.

The bathtub faucet is controlled by a single control, that you turn one way or the other to get warmer or cooler water. How that can be affected by how the sink is running is beyond me.

Thanks for any help.

Cheers and happy 2018.
