I try to use most of the product by years end, but I leave whatever is left in the tank, outside for the winter. Top up in the spring, and good to go.

We are done now, finished up Thursday tanks are all empty and lines are clean. I will let what is in the tank sit and some time in January I will go out and tap on the tanks and agitators with a hammer and the sealer just falls off in the bottom of the tank.

Pump it out if you can into storage and keep them warm. DON'T let it freeze!

Dont let it freeze. If you can leave it in the tank put it in a heated garage. Or empty out into plastic totes and put it in the garage. Usually tanks up less space it totes.

Guy from Protect Equipment just told me to NEVER use diesel in tanks or lines. Just leave 3 inches in tank and store for winter.

Yes dont use diesel. Use rv antifreeze works the best for winterizing.

For people who spray Blackmac sealer. Found out you can leave leftover sealer in your tank over the winter, just add fresh sealer in the spring and run pump at least 10 minutes with wand back into tank . NEVER use diesel fuel in tank or lines.
