As I have the hot water tank cut off using method 1, it can't use this area to compress the air so it only builds up in the pipes. I know liquids don't compress well so there must be a shutoff pressure in the water pump. Am I correct? Many thanks for your help, it is greatly appreciated! Dan
Can't help you with that detail as I don't need to winterize. Somebody else will chime in.
It's my understanding that part of the winterization process is to bypass the hot water tank; I think most take the anode out to drain it for the winter. Otherwise you'd be putting a whole 6 gallons of anti-freeze in there!
