Freeze Problems Bladder Tank?
I have a cabin in the West Virginia mountains.We sometimes have a week or two with temps in the teens and twentys, nothing too cold, but cold enough to do damage in an unheated house. It has a shallow well with a jet pump in a crawl space under the house. I always drain the system when I leave in the wintertime and have had no problems with it for some time. This lack of problems of course comes after a multitude of hard learned lessons, 1AM pipe thawing followed by sweating copper at 2:30, cracked pump casings, etc. Anyway I have just replaced my old galvanized pressure tank with a bladder type. My question is: when I drain my system ( pressure tank is at low point) will all the water drain out of the tank? More importantly will the bladder in the tank have problems if it becomes frozen.
Thanks for your expertise. Enjoy, Bruce
