How do I winterize my water accumulator tank??

Answer:

Water doesn't actually flow through your accumulator tank. Some flows into it to trap an air bubble which serves to even out pressure throughout the system, but running antifreeze through the lines would put very little into the accumulator--like pouring more water into a full jug. That is why the water froze and cracked the tank. This year drain the accumulator. You may have to shake it to empty it completely.
