I see where you are going with that, since there is no way to immediately and completely dry the water jacket. I think most mild steel begins to rust at 40% humidity give or take depending on the iron and nickel content.

Thanks for the info.

I would avoid draining it. Once rust starts in there it won't stop.

May I inquire about your experiences with this condition? You are saying rust formation continues when it is drained or refilled after a seasonal drain? Even with residual treated water rust formation will continue? Please do expand on that.




Edit (punctuation)

Have you ever seen a rusty piece of metal just un-rust? Day one after draining it will start to surface rust, they all do. Refilling at a later date will introduce again more O2 to the system and further the oxidation process. Snowball that for a few years, what do we have now? Treated water or not, when that wet steel is reintroduced to new oxygen it WILL oxidize almost immediately

I was at the Outdoor farm show last week and when I stopped at the Portage & main booth there was a Polar gasser unit there. I was told the Portage & main bought Polar in March/April time frame and it is now one company.

I have not bought a unit yet since I am looking to build a new house next year and want to put a unit into my Garage. I was at the Outdoor farm show last week and found out that Polar was sold to Portage & Main in March did you hear that?

No when it is left empty with nothing in it .ever see how fast your brake rotors rust up after a rain.

I came across some literature the other day. Here is a little technical info that offers more detail on the subject.

If it gets above 32 most days then I would not worry about it so much. I was thinking -30 you don't have long till it is a solid block of ice.

If it was mine, I would drain it and fill the lines and pump with RV antifreeze.

Let us know what CB says.
