I leave the low point drains closed all the time, except when winterizing.

City water has chlorine in it and since the pipes are dark, it will not break down and continue to keep the pipes bacteria free.

If you drain, this protection is gone and you should sanitize your plumbing when you refill the pipes.

If you do drain the plumbing, just set the heart winterization valves to winterize position and then drain the hot water heater from the outside and the pipes from the low point drains.
