In addition to the step-by-step guide, here a few tips to help you avoid ice damage:
- Verify that water flows when valves or plugs are opened. Ensure that ice has not plugged drain lines, valves or drain plugs.
- Leave all drain plugs open to keep residual tank water from the tanks from migrating to the system during transport.
- Leave all valves open, Y-strainers out and drain plugs out when the unit will sit overnight or longer. This will allow residual water to drain.
- If the unit cannot be properly drained, move the unit to a warm area and allow the water system to completely drain.
- Never operate water pumps if the system is frozen.
