Quick summary of dry wint:
- Disconnect water meter, zip tie city side shutoff
- Let water drain out, then blow out all fixture supply lines with air
- Empty HWH, shut off breaker if necessary
- Fill all traps/toilets/etc with the pink antifreeze
- Verify if pipes hold pressure, if not, note leaks
- For these properties, pretty much always a sign on front door, every fixture, sometimes wrap over toilets(people are notorious for using toilets at foreclosures, either people looking at house, agents, contractors, etc)
- Also, photos of everything for banks.
Other liquid heat sources have an extra set of steps to drain them.
I have never seen shrink wrap over faucets/sinks here, just toilets. All of the different companies has slightly different requirements, some need signs on certain things, wrap on certain things, some certain colors of zip ties, etc.
Can someone please explain the process of winterizing to me? I'm an hvac tech who's company has merged with a home remodeling company who takes care of many foreclosed homes. All have been "Winterized" which I have no idea what that means or the process involved.
I see shrink wrap over the faucets and sinks and many notes saying the home has been Winterized. Never even heard of this prior.
