This exact remedy has been know to happen around many a campfire. I just knew there was medicinal value to that sweet, sweet nectar.

My wife insists that my Auchentoshan smells just like a campfire. Nothing wrong with that, I say, especially when Escaping.

Myron, when you hear the doorbell ring, and look outside to see a van with some really nice men in white coats coming to your door, don't be alarmed, they are there to help you.

Right on. I looked at it as something that could help someone. I think things are getting a little carried away. In an Escape we are talking about maybe a 4' length of 1/2" pipe (from the city water inlet to the faucet). How much air or anti-freeze is that? About .022 cubic feet. The first gallon of water will clear it out.

A Better DIY Source to Blow Out Water Lines

What a relief to read you post! Often dreams are solutions when you look at them through the rear view mirror

You are a natural gas compressor, your water might taste like you ... butt never worse

Enjoy your day

Jim I prefer Toasted Almond myself. Kept at 32° but just like my lines, never frozen solid
