Why all the hubbub of using the winterizing bypass?


Start with a gallon jug, fill it about 1/2 way with water, pour the measure of bleach needed and then fill the jug with water. Suck that solution into the system via the winterizing bypass.


Fill and suck that jug 2 more times to clear it of bleach, sending it into the freshwater tank.
Then switchover to 5 gallon jugs or the city water port to finish filling the tank.

No one has a buggy anymore so a buggy whip can't be found but if you had one, I'm sure you could find a use for it! LOL

An invention to simplify something that's complex is always a welcome thing.

That's the question I have after reading this. The idea is interesting but it doesn't seem to save all that much time. Either way you still have to sanitize the FW tank. We're not talking about something that's all that time consuming or difficult to begin with.

Thanks all, it sounds like the easiest way to accomplish this is to just add the appropriate amount of bleach to the hose itself, connect the hose (with the valves in the city fill position) and turn on the water. Let the tank fill, then after a few hours run some of whats in the tank through all of the hot and cold fixtures.

I presume that I will need to turn the filter bypass valves to the bypass position first, so the bleach doesn't go through the filter.

Man, this sounds so much easier than the hose in a bucket routine!

Can it really be that easy?
