Re: Winter Storage Recommendations?

The hard parts of your Tartain are not going to care they are outside, other than wanting a good cover to keep the decks clear of freezing water/snow. However, plenty of other things are. At temps that low, be sure to use -100f antifreeze. If the standard -50f antifreeze is diluted in the process of flushing out your systems, its antifreeze capacity becomes severely reduced. Those are burst ratings, not freeze ratings, btw. Each of these products actually freeze at much warmer temps. The -50 freezes at a temp well above zero. The question of when your hoses will burst, due the freeze expansion, is more than I'm willing to test. I understand the burst rating is based on metal.
