Dewinterizing w/uni dock control panel

New guy here. I understand how to winterize and sanitize w/the uni dock system. When dewinterizing how do you avoid getting antifreeze into the hot water tank. When setting the valves for city water the hot water tank is no longer bypassed so will antifreeze get into the hot water tank. Also when dewinterizing do you open the low point valves? Also I've got a washer/dryer. Do I need to cycle it to flush the antifreeze from it? It's a 323lkts. Thanks in advance, rick

In that same area are 3 valves that either bypass the wh or allow water into it. Make sure it is bypassed and drained before you winterize.

Interesting....I wouldn't have thought of it.
It wouldn't be much antifreeze going in though.
I think I will just open the low points to let most antifreeze out, then leave the levers on winterized, and use a couple buckets of water sucking through the system until the beginning area is free from antifreeze. Then turn the levers to city.

To de-winterized I hook up to city water and open all the faucets till the water is clear and there is no foaming (the anti-freeze seems to foam a bit coming thru the strainers) then put a fresh filter in. Since you have a washer I'd run it thru a cycle. Set the WH to normal and fill and I'm good to go. I don't bother with low point drains.

I don't worry about antifreeze because, I used compressed air to blow everything out. The only places I used antifreeze was in all the drains to fill P-traps.

Wow gosh end is way up there in Indiana. Do you have indoor storage? I thought about just blowing out the lines but I'm storing outside and I'm a new guy so I guess I'll try and stay safe until I get my feet wet. I'm just north of louisville ky

Rgrigutis,

Using compressed air, I would think is safe no matter how far north one lives.

If you are interested, I'd be delighted to go thru the steps I use when I winterize. I admit, I probably take more time doing it than normal but, it has worked for me this way for 12 years.

Sanitize and flush your plumbing with the heater bypassed. The potable water tank and all faucets need to be done.
