How do I prepare a chiller for long-term storage?

If you are planning on storing your chiller for a period of about a year or longer:
  1. Take a 5 gallon bucket and fill it with 2 gallons of water
  2. Add 1 gallon of white vinegar to the bucket of water
  3. Allow this water/vinegar solution to circulate through the chiller and return to the bucket for about 30 minutes.
  4. Discard the contents of the bucket and rinse.
  5. Circulate fresh clean water through the chiller for 10 or 15 minutes more.
  6. When you are finished, tip the chiller to one side to remove as much water as you can prior to storage.
  7. Place the chiller in a box and store in a well-protected area
Remove as much water as you can from the chiller without air blowing by tipping the chiller to one side. Some residual water left in the unit is okay since the exchanger is titanium.

Unit should be ready to use the next time you are ready to use it again.
