Unless you have evidence of lots of scale, (mineral deposits) it may not be necessary to use vinegar. The YouTube video shows the procedure if you have a winterizing system to draw liquids into to system. If you don't, you could disconnect the water pump intake and put a hose on the line and draw the vinegar in that way. Adding a 'T' fitting, valve, and winterizing hose isn't hard, and a good addition if your's isn't equipped.
