Im looking for information on protecting water lines in a mobile home thats not being heated. The water supply has been shut off and all faucets opened. I know that they make an antifreeze that is used to fill the lines but I need more information.

Most item are the same however make sure to use the Non-Toxic RV style antifreeze


Most cases no anti freeze is used in the supply lines (draining is usally enough) just the sewer/drain traps need the antifreeze. (don't try and get all the water from the trapps or sewer gases will get into the home)
I have seen compressed air tank used to help push water from pipes on unusual feeds in homes also.
