draining pumps in cold weather
Yes up here in Montreal Canada pumps are
kept dry during the winter. Yes they will
freeze if not in use at a fire. Like everything else, cold is a relative thing.
I saw some posts say they have never seen
a pump freeze.It is common up here during the coldest months of the winter normally
January and February.
After draining just the pump(not the tank)
all is left to dry then a pull on the primer to oil everything up and close
all valves and drains.
At -30 degrees drains will freeze-up
on route to the call.If you have to draft
with drains frozen open good luck!
I guess this isn't a problem in Florida.:)
