So that the system starts up next spring without issues!
Fluid that freezes inside the pump, valves, nozzles and fittings expands and will break the components.

If you've installed one of these filters and there is any risk of a freeze, you should take these simple steps to ensure the filter is operational next spring:

1) Disconnect the pressure relief valve and invert it to drain the water, then reconnect it.
2) Unscrew the head from the housing and pour out remaining water. Discard the element.
