I thought I saw a product that allowed you to "inject" antifreeze into your city water hookup. Wouldn't that work for your Tornado as well?

Here's what I'd suggest. Take a hose and drain it completely. Hook it to the flush connector and fill it (or almost) with antifreeze. support about 10' of the hose above the flush connector and hook it to the water supply. Turn the water on for about 2 to 5 seconds. That will force antifreeze into the flush hose but won't be enough time for the water to dilute it.

Another way to do it would be to hook a hose to the outside shower or other faucet with something like a "water thief" and then hook it to the flush connector. Then, while pumping the antifreeze through the system you could open the faucet and let the antifreeze flow through the flush system into the tank. Kinda killing two birds with one stone if you know what I mean.

if i had taken more time, i could have used my plastic hand/manual antifreeze pump and connected to the hose connections of my tornado water inlet lines
