Then all I do is pull the impeller. I never drain the water or the AF. I don't drain the water because end up pulling the hot water off of the thermostat which could allow it to close. I don't drain the AF because I want the anti corrosion of the AF in the motor.

To each their own.
Indeed...lots of ways to skin that cat. But great to hear from those that have skinned that cat year after year and have a trophy room of mounted heads to show for it.

Thanks Oz for letting me peek behind the curtain.
