You know those signs that go on your TV antennae crank-up handle. The sign that reminds you to put your antennae down...   Someone should design a sign that goes on your water inlet that says something like:  remember to reconnect the freshwater line to the toilet before hooking to city water.  A sign like that could be very useful to some people.....    :banghead:

Or a sign that reads "after draining black tank be sure to close the valve, you wont like it next time you take the off the cap".

Of course you only need that sign one time, you'll never need it again.

Bingo!

I have one word for you.....

VODKA !

My toilet was full of vodka all winter and no issues at all. And this winter was a great litmus test.

A side side benefit is that the toilet is nice and disinfected, too.....
