Another vote for blow out water lines & pink AF in the traps & drains & toilet. Found an adapter at CW that fits the water hook up. Just be sure & turn the pressure on the air compressor down to about 30 PSI. Open all the valves one at a time. Don't forget to drain the water heater & turn bypass valves before blowing out lines.

Drain low point-- close it--blow out everything. Then open low point and blow it out. Then I leave low point open

Doesn't the antifreeze leak out (the antifreeze you poured in for the traps) if you leave the low point open at the end of your process ?

Blowing all lines out with air is a great idea. I like pumping the "pink Stuff" thru every line also. including the city water connection and the black tank flush line. I like the idea that my pump had anti-freeze in it... instead of water...and...also don't forget washer hot/cold lines

The lazy guy in me would buy one of these and pump away.

I blow out the lines then pull the pink stuff into the water pump lines... then pour into the traps ...and some into the tanks.

There are several schools of thought going on in here all at one time. There are a few hard rules that need to be taken into account. One, no anti-freeze in the fresh tank. Two, your wasting pink stuff putting it in your blk and grey tanks (assumed empty). Three, if you just blow things out, make sure your toilet flush valve has been blown clear of residual water because any settling there can cause valve freezing failure. To the guy who wants to force pink stuff into the city connection, better buy a lot of antifreeze, your going to need it, unless of course you can isolate your fresh water tank.
