I am talking about blowing out with the air I know i have to add antifreeze to all my p traps, toilets, showers and tanks. I just don't want any antifreeze in my lines.
So do i just hook air hose to the city hook up and do about 25psi until all the water is gone?
Put the bypass on the hwh in the bypass mode (water/air bypasses the heater). It should be drained and the plug left out.

Connect your compressor (I run mine at about 35psi) to an adapter that goes into the fresh water connection. Run the compressor and start opening taps until water stops beginning with the tap furthest away from the port. After completing all the taps and they aren't putting out water (don't forget the outside shower) I open the low point drains until they are clear. Close and then I usually quickly repeat the process to get rid of any residual water that might have been left. Then close things up and add the anti freeze as you mentioned.

It looks like you are in Idaho so I would seriously consider pumping anti freeze into the lines. When blowing only there is usually a bit of water left somewhere. If it settles into your low point drains they might break. Also, I would leave every faucet cracked open for expansion if something freezes. If they are closed and water in the line freezes it WILL break something.

I blow each line for about 5 min make sure everything is out. I dont like tipping antefreeze into the lines, only ptraps. Even if there is a 5 drops I dont think it will damage any lines cuz there is room to expand. Same thing we do with sprinklers. Blow them out and good to go. How do you guys do your water pumps. On this one I disconnect one of the lines then blow it out. Its completely dry. Is there is a drain plug in those?

Also how you put the heater on by pass mode. I did open love plug and blow all the water out. Did I did something wrong?

By pass valve will be on the back side of the water heater. Since you're not using anti freeze I don't think you did anything wrong.
