Winterizing water dragon skid

Recommended Posts

Had a question on the best way to winterize my skid. Is it best to just pour the antifreeze into the water tank and pull it through both the high pressure hose and soft wash system? Also allow it to run through the bypass. What about from the water hose it self, what's the best way for that?

You got it Tristan....but I actually drain all the water out of the tank...then disconnect the feed hose from the tank, slap on a little extension hose and plop into a five gallon bucket with some anti freeze in and fire up the machine and open the ball valve.  Once I see the anti freeze coming through the ball valve I know the anti freeze is all through the system and I shut the machine off.

 

For the garden hose I just wrap the hose reel in a couple blankets.  I use the moving blankets you can get at HD or Lowes.

So you would disconnect the feed hose that goes to the pump from the supply tank? Let it run until it comes out of the high pressure hose. Close it off and let it run through the bypass back in to the water supply tank. For the soft wash pour some in to the chem tank and pull from there until it goes through the hose and shut it off. There are two pictures for where I think I need to disconnect and have concerns about.

Yes.....the just hook the supply hose back up to the tank.  your just using the 5 gallon bucket as your supply tank is all.

 

For the soft wash system I do the same thing.  Use a five gallon bucket and mix 50/50 water and anti freeze. and run it through the pumps and and hoses.
