When you’re winterizing your freshwater system and want to prevent messy spurts and sprays that occur when you’ve finished running antifreeze through the lines to the sinks, and the tank and pump are almost dry, cut the bottom out of a few one-gallon plastic bottles and put one in each sink so the faucet spout is in the opening of the bottle. All of the spurts and sprays will then be nicely contained and there’ll be no mess at all.
