First I open all the taps and then open the low point drains. When they stop draining, close the drains and close the taps. Then I have the DW open each faucet (and toilet) one at a time and blow air into the city water connection until she says nothing is coming out but air. This is all I do, I don't use the pink stuff except in the sink and shower drains, and some through the toilet into the black tank. No problems yet in northern Illinois (-20 deg F for days at a time). I don't really do anything about the water pump; it's still got water in it. No problems with it yet, but I may think about pumping some pink through it this year.
(Actually, I have had one issue, possibly
winterization related, and related to the drains, not the supply: My kitchen is in my slide, so it's about 4+ ft from my sink to the flexible hose connection for the kitchen drain. The hose connection split this spring, MAYBE because I didn't pour enough pink into the drain to get all the way to the connection. But I can't prove it. It could also have been because the hose wasn't connected "straight-on." But I will pour a lot more in this winter!)
