For Washer Dryer if I open he two valves, add hoses to empty into drain and run the antifreeze through until fully dark pink/red that should be sufficient and the antifreeze will displace any residual water left in those lines correct?

That's my plan on how to winterize them, my hookups are right beside the shower so running a hose from the w/d lines into shower drain and pump antifreeze. Still hard to believe they hid valves in the wall that I needed to access for winterization

Quick question about North Point winterizing. I did mine this past week. While I was running the pink stuff with the hose in the jug, I turned on the pump and the pink stuff was sucked up. I thought that the pump would stop running until I turned on a faucet. I made sure all of the faucet were off and all drains were closed, but the pump kept sucking up the pink stuff. No idea where it was going. I made sure it was not the water filter and I know it was not the water heater. Any ideas?

You have to have enough fluid to fully pressurize the line otherwise the pump will continue to run. Especially if you had opened your low point drains (you did remember to close them before sucking up the antifreeze I hope)

I did bypass the water heater. I even pulled the drain plug again just to make sure. I did make sure all the low point valves were closed. It ran 3 gallons total before I gave up. Had pink through every toilet, faucet and low point afterwards. My thought/ fear is I have a leak hidden somewhere.

Did you blow out your lines with air prior to antifreeze, I have noticed a few times that the pump will not shut off until you get the air out of the lines. It took me a little over 3 gal to winterize my camper but one of those was used in traps and black and grey tank.
