Re: [Amel] RE: Pickling watermaker
I just spoke with a Dessalator dealer up in New England about winterizing the watermaker, and they said all they do, is run potable, pink antifreeze through the watermakers and its good for several months. They do not use the chemicals because its " bad stuff". I have been using it for years in the water systems and it leaves an unpleasant taste/odor and requires massive flushing in the spring to rid the system of odor and bad taste.

I know little about prepping for a winter freeze, but I would think that the small amount of Sodium Metabisulfite used with fresh water would not keep the solution from freezing.
This is what Dessalator says:
How to winterize your watermaker:
Several solutions are possible:
I bought a 24 volt timer and a 24 volt valve that I plan to install to rinse the membranes when I am away for longer than 1 month.
Other than that, I am not able to help.
