Air compressor

How long should I run 40 psi air through my water lines to clear them?

I always did it until air stopped coming out of the faucets.

I usually stop when the water does.

Why even use air if antifreeze replaces any water anyway?

Does it replace it or just mix with it?

Using the water pump under the sink so I believe it would replace any water when I open the faucets all over the camper till runs pink. My tech guy where we bought unit has said he doesn't use air.

AND it's not his camper either. Why would he care if he left a little water in your filter or where ever.
Our tech, who has been very good to us, said all we needed to do was blow it out too. But where we live it does get down to 0* during the winter so I blow it out then run antifreeze.

Good Luck
