Water Pump Winterizing Advice
Didn't see a past thread on this so to pose a general question to the group... I in the past have disconnected my water pump from the in and outlets and pulled the filter screen off completely when I winterized.
Call me overly cautious, but I don't want anything in the pump or filter cannister.
Prior to all of this I blow everything out, pump antifreeze through, then blow and run that out too. (See overly cautious!)
My question is does anyone have a recommendation on what to do with the pump and filter. i.e. leave it as is or disconnect?
Part of my fear comes from last year I think the diaphram in the pump actually dried out and cracked that way since there was no liquid there at all, and I had to replace the pump this past spring.
What do you all do?
