    you can use antifreeze.but you need non toxic antifreeze,this will be ok for rubber seals,brass,alloy etc.get rid of any water & run a gallon of this stuff through.then chuck an old duvet over it.

    Surely if you completely drain it no damage can occur as nothing in it to freeze

    its not worth the risk.the manufacturers recommends non toxic antifreeze.ive left water fed pole triggers,hose reels etc in my shed with only a minor amount of water in them & they have cracked with the frost.below-o.even froze one of my di vessels solid.happy days ahead.
