In response to Re: Winterization
Rick,

I have had direct experience with summer camps and summer residences since the mid 50's. My advice would to be to just drain the systems, and or blow out if necessary due to piping. I have seen little to no less service life out of water heaters or pumps than you would expect with continuious service. The last water heater I replaced, last year, had been in service over 15 years, the last pump replaced was in service about 20 years.

More important that all pipes and appliances are well drained.

: Is there a additive that can be added to such equipment as hot water heaters for protection, i manitain a camp and all plumbing is shut off and drained during winter months. I am interested in something that would protect from corrosion, etc. and would need something that is bio-degradable
