Curious if anyone does this on their 415 and if so, how?

I have not done it, but it should be easy if you connect the air to the outlet side of the hose attached to the water pump.  Keep pressure under 40PSI and open valves farthest away to nearest in sequence.  Enjoy.

I would do this as an "also" rather than an "instead of".    If there are low spots in the system where water can pool I'm not surer this will not move it. 

I'm also doubtful about it getting water out of things like the shower mixing valves which could freeze and then spray all over the place in the spring..
