RE: Blow out water lines question

Yeah I hate the taste and have yet to find a solution to remove it quickly.

RE: Blow out water lines question

Well, I chickened out and used the pink stuff. I am considering blowing out the lines again to remove most of the pink since the lines and valves have been flushed. This is in hopes to reduce the amount of effort it takes to remove that pink stuff taste in the spring time. Now that I know the valves and water pump dont have any residual water in them I won't worry. I'm thinking between the lower amounts of residual pink coating the lines and using baking soda in the spring, it will be easier to remove that taste.

RE: Blow out water lines question

Thanks for the replies everyone. I get there is still debate about this topic. I live where it does get below freezing for very long periods. Because its the first time I'm considering it, I have to admit, I am a little worried that only blowing the airlines won't work. But there are folks from Canada, Washington state, Massachusetts, etc. using the blow out method with success. All of these states get extremely cold. As well, some people have said they've had damage by only blowing out the lines. The main reason I would rather avoid the pink stuff in the lines, is the taste. I used it for 7 years in my last camper and didn't have any ruptured lines. But the taste just takes forever to go away. And yes I sanitize with bleach in the spring and have done mass (sometimes extreme) flushings. I tried using extra bleach and that rv antifreeze taste was still there. (I don't want to take water bottles with me.) I recently read where baking soda is supposed to get rid of that taste. I've never tried it. We bypass the water heater, blow out the lines, open the low point drains. 25 or so years and it has frozen. Pink stuff in the traps. What do you do with your water pump?

Blow out water lines question

First time trying the blow out method. The one thing that I typically dont see is what do folks do with the freshwater pump? The one thing I read was to fully drain the freshwater tank. Then turn the pump on and let it run until no water comes out and then continue for another 15 20 seconds to continue to clear out any remaining water in the pump. Is that sufficient? I've used no pink stuff in any lines, just air. I did put the pink stuff in the traps and in the toilet bowl. Also my GD 2400BH has a black tank water inlet for a spray bar to clean inside of the black tank. Is it necessary to blow the line for that considering there are no valves and it's not pressurized? I already did it but just curious if its needed.
