Default Winterize Toilet

Let me answer the toilet question. Yes, flush the tank after turning off the water, then sponge out the bottom of the tank. You don't want to completely sponge out the bowl, because what you see is half of the trap. Just take out part of the water, then pour in the antifreeze for a 50/50 mix until you reach the normal bowl level. Emptying the bowl (trap) would expose the house to sewer gas - not desired.
