Why do we have to winterize teardowns? If there was any sort of codes here the last 2 winterizes we did would be condemned. There is no saving them. One is 576 Sq Ft and falling ito its own foundation. I won't go back into it. One is nearly as bad, Trashed, falling apart and full of rats, roaches, fleas and such. Again, a teardown and the realtor has explicitly told them this but NOPE! Gotta winterize them! Had one 2 years ago that is was told to winterize. (Fannie Mae) Pipes had burst and house was growing mold FAST. Got it winterized, Didn't hold pressure of course! It was purchased by a neighbor and torn down 2 months later. Did a PARTIAL today. Water heater split, pipes burst, poured into the kitchen trap without issue, Poured into the bathroom trap and it was cracked, Poured into the toilet bowl which was dry and found out why it was dry when pink came out on the floor, Poured into the tub and heard it dripping in the crawlspace. What a waste of time and money..........
