    Instructions

    things you'll need:
    1 adjustable wrench
    1
    Turn off the main water supply to your house.

    2
    Locate the faucet or spigot that is situated at the lowest point for your house. Typically this will be an outside spigot.

    3
    Fasten a hose to this spigot and position the exit end of hose away from the house. Open this spigot.

    4
    Inside the house, open several (most) faucets.

    5
    Keep all faucets open until water no longer drains from the hose connected to the lowest located faucet/spigot.

    6
    Close the outside (lowest point) spigot once water no longer drains from it. Then turn on main water supply to the house.

    7
    Leave inside faucets open and allow these to run until the gurgling/spitting sound is no loner heard. Once the gurgling/spitting stops in all faucets the lines are free of air and all faucets may be closed.
