I blow out first to remove the majority of the water as to not dilute the antifreeze. I use the pump to pump the antifreeze in.

Some of you are talking about how much air pressure you use to blow water out of lines during winterizing. Others are talking about how much water pressure you allow in city water lines while you are taking a shower / not taking a shower. I'm sure this is helpful to newbie winterizers.

I did go out and turn the furnace blower on and the EdenPure electric heater, opened the door wide open on the heat duct to let air circulate in the basement as it is forecast to get down to 20 here tonight and for the next several nights. Switch on furnace blower sure is handy.

Ah yes got my PSI mixed up...lol

I do blow out my lines at 40 PSI Shasta said good amount of pressure but water lines can handle temp increases but never exceed 40 psi when using an air compressor

I don't think it will go "bad" especially if it's a new sealed gallon.
