When to open low point drain

Winterizing with antifreeze. Drained the 2 low point drains before pumping antifreeze through lines. Do I open them again AFTER running antifreeze through all the lines or will all the antifreeze run out?

You should drain a little AF out of the low point drains. Any water left in the lines will be pushed to the low points and needs to be drained out.

I loosened mine just enough to start dripping then a tiny spray from the remaining pressure until I saw pink, then snugged them back up. Because I did not want to drain out the new antifreeze ;(
