I have always left mine out until rugerguy just mentioned something possibly crawling in there. All of these years and I never thought about that.

I leave mine out. I do flush the tank as part of my spring sanitizing routine.

That's my worry, something moving in...might be hard to flush a nest out. I just don't know if its an environment that anything can live in.

I leave it out and keep a bar of Irish Spring soap in the compartment. I've heard the soap keeps the critters away.

I drain the tank and put it back in. Plenty of room for any expansion of what small amount of water might be left.

JMHO,
Doug

I leave it out, but put a rag in the opening to ward off uninvited guests.

I leave it in due to possible corrosion, dirt and critters wanting a home. It is finger tight then pulled for the spring flush.

I leave it out and have a flea collar placed in the compartment somewhere which keeps out wasps, etc. I guess a mouse could crawl up in there but not sure why...no food there and nothin' to chew on
