    I put a washing machine hose into a jug of -30 windshield washer fluid then run the pump till it comes out of the hose. Never had a freeze up.

      RV outlets have trap anti freeze, safe

        we use RV antifreeze, dump a jug into the holding tank on our big gas jetter, then run it until it hits the end of the jetter hose.
        No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

          what Ron said.

          or, if this works for your set up, I keep an old 90wt jug (cause they have the nice nozzle tips which fit mine's inlet perfect) with blue water in it and squeeze til it runs blue.

          or, actually, that's what I did before I had my beloved heated indoor parking.

          rv anti-freeze=$6/gallon, window washer=$1.39/gallon, and the dogs don't like it.
          This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

                I think I would actually miss a real winter. That and frozen piping in older homes is good business for some of us. I really want a propress too for working in those conditions, but I think it's more likely that i'll buy myself a jetsweat kit this winter.

                    Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.
