      I've heard to add a bit to the water traps 2. I just bought Gunk brand. I guess the best to use is *meth-something* based and not alcohol based.

      so is it really necessary for manual valves? Coldest it gets here in Missouri is 0 degrees fahrenheit, but that would be pushing it. I have water traps between my tank and my manual valves so would there really be a problem?

      This is my setup...



      Water traps before the tank because its a steel tank. Wanted to keep as much water out as possible. Should I just add it to the tank and call it a day? I live in MD/PA so it gets pretty cold here. Nothing below like 25 I would say, but still below freezing.

      Ive got the same weather as you amigo (Cincy) and I am going to add a little to the tank... It can't hurt anything.
