What's the best way to drain a modern manifold

I never ran into one before, and could use a pointer or two. I'm thinking on circuit at a time, or from the meter feed.

You talking a manoblock?? That would be the EASIEST thing in the world to wint. Shut off all the valves except for the valves to the wash machine outlet if that's where your gonna tie the air line in. Charge the system, Blow the water heater out, open every fixture in the house and blow each line by turning the valve on at the manoblock. I don't know why more people don't install these. There will be one in my home when i build..........

Maybe I missed someting, but I coudd not get the

system to pressurize. I assumed the back flow preventor(check valves) only allow flow in on direction, and only pressurized the circuit where the compressor was hooked.

and it was just like you said, CAKE. I don't know what the issue was with that other system. I'll have another shot at it in the next day or two.
