Dewinterizing

Hi I see various videos and suggestions regarding dewinterizing. Some say fill fresh water tank and turn on pump to flush out antifreeze. And some say hook up water to city line and flush out antifreeze. Is there a real advantage to either or just preference? The only difference I can see is fresh water flush versus city water flush is you can't sanitize using connection to city water flush out of antifreeze. What your ideas and best solutions? Thanks Jim

I use the city water side, no real reason just easy for me that way.

After flushing the A/F out I add a 1/4 cup of bleach for every 15 gallons of water to the fresh tank and then let it sit over night.

In the AM I use the pump to empty the tank by way of all the faucets and the outside shower, I also open the low point drains.

Refill the tank and drain until there is no bleach smell.

X2. Except I pump the bleach water into the lines for the overnight.
