You didn't mention what tt you have, but most have a line that is hooked up to the water pump. The line is usually 18" -2' long and is cut off. There should be a valve on this line. Open the valve, valve is open when the handle is turned parrell to the line. Place the end of the hose in the anti freeze container and turn on your water pump. Open each faucet one at a time, hot and cold, until you see anti freeze coming out. Don't forget your outside shower if you have one. Also don't forget your toilet. Flush until you see the anti freeze coming out and leave some in the toilet as well.
Of course you must drain all water in the system first including your hot water tank and don't forget your low point drains. Close off the lines going into and out of the hot water tank and open the bypass valve on the line running between the two.
Here's a pic of the lines next to the hot water tank. This is the only pic I have and only shows 2 valves instead of 3 because the hot water line has a check valve preventing back flow into the tank. Your's will most likely have a valve on this line.
