Yes but it's just to get rid of the rest of the red stuff...they are already full of it from the faucets. One thing I don't do is put any into the fresh water tank because the drain removes it all.

I leave everything as-is because in the Spring I will put hot water and a little bleach in a big bucket and de-winterize all the same lines. (Gallons and gallons)

Once you open them to drain then close them again before you start they will fill automatically. The low point drains are your weak points. They are exposed to the weather. I added two shut off valves inside the basement to them. that will keep water out of the low points. I just open the inside valves to drain them. I had those freeze camping before which caused a leak at the 90 degree fitting on mine and leaked water and filled the underbelly from expanding the clamp connector.Other then that put insulation on the low side drains sticking out the underbelly.

Yes....if there's water in there and it's a hard freeze, it'll break them to pieces. (I had some water in my copper manifold for my sprinkler system that cracked clean in half...it's amazing!)

I'm a little paranoid about having water in both my fresh water tank drain and in the low point drains and will open them up in the winter to let whatever is in there out. (And there's usually a little bit in there.)

Does anyone know what the part # is for a by-pass kit on a Georgetown 351?

Works great for us too where the temps can reach -40. And when old man winter finally decides to take a hike, there's no de-winterizing. Pressurize the plumbing, leak check and go!
