I am winterizing my Zinger myself this year. I believe I have it figured out, however I have a few questions concerning the water heater. Does the water going into the heater enter through the bottom fitting? Does theupper fitting on the heater have a check valve on it? I assume that it does and that all I must do to winterize the water heater is to open the bypass valve and close the bottom valve that lets the water into the heater, then drain the water heater. After that I just add 2 or three gallons of antifreeze using the water pump (all this after blowing the lines) Do I have it right?

Does theupper fitting on the heater have a check valve on it? Not certain but on my unit I also have aseparate line that goes between the HW inlet and outlet also with a valve. This valve needs to be open to bypass.

I did mine today and you seem to have a good handle on it. I don't blow out the lines first though. I just suck up the A/F from the pump. Don't forget the outside shower.

I always get depressed when winterizing!
