Winterizing

I have a quick question. I put antifreeze in my lines but forgot one thing I guess because I never use it. But I didn't open up my outside shower head up to run it out. Will it be ok? Of freeze and bust? I have never ran water through it

If there is any water in the line, faucet or shower head, it will freeze and probably damage it.

Odds are good you have water to the faucet at least, there may well have been some leakage into the shower line and head.


It is possible that some AF may have leached in to that area but is is most likely very diluted.

You must live in a Cold location? Unless they tested your system with (Air) someone put water in it! To late now,you will know in the future. Drain the Pink come Spring and (Test with Air) that way you will NOT have WATER to mop up where your leaks are! (30 PSI Regulated Air Pressure is Plenty for this TEST,and you can Hear it! Youroo!!

Are you talking about keeping heat on in unit or do you store unit inside that is heated,if you store inside at 40 deg. don't worry about it!

You don't say what unit you have, but many models use plastic faucet assemble in the outside shower. If it froze, it most likely cracked. In addition to winterizing, I always remove all my shower heads just to be safe. Takes 1 min to reattach.
