"...fill them with Vodka if you're worried about freezing."

Will the alcohol in Vodka tend to bother the pump and valve seals, etc.,
that normally only see water?

At any rate, winterizing the Silvia might require Espresso Vodka, like Sarah
got for me a couple of years ago. Or, you might get some propylene
glycol-based RV water system antifreeze.

Just fill the reservoir with the winterizer, pump it through the wands and
group without letting the boiler catch up to its normal temperature.

Got Grinder?
