I bought a flowzone cyclone backpack sprayer this summer. I just used it for the last time this season. Its a battery powered pump. After cleaning it, should i be concerned about water in the pump, lines, or nozzle? It will be stored in an unheated storage building. I misplaced the manual for it.

I have RV potable water anti-freeze on hand, should i run that through it ?

Thanks.

I’d use the RV antifreeze it’s what I have been using for year in backpack sprayer. Pressure washer pump CAT that gets premix 50/50 EG antifreeze after every use.

What does the manual state? Not having eyes on it, I'd probably just take the hose off and shake excess water out. If I ran antifreeze through it, I'd still do that.

I found the manual online, does not address winter storage.

I'll use the rv water system antifreeze.
