Great picture, and explanation. Thanks! I do have the same brass fitting, with a hose attached. I assume I can loosen the brass fitting to drain the heat exchanger into the attached hose?

What about the various pet-cocks? Is it necessary to loosen/drain these as well? I am looking over the manual now and trying to make sense of it so I can be ready to do this on the weekend.

Thanks again!

Oh fun. So "which one's which" just became very entertaining. The manual didn't seem to identify the location(s) of any of them! Any pointers are appreciated!

Guess it won't hurt to just open them all. The impeller should fill the exchanger when we fire it up, and we'll be filling the coolant with distilled water a few times, then emptying.

Sound like the right process?
