I've always blown the water systems out with air,then just filled the pump with RV antifreeze,but it takes awhile in the spring to get rid of the taste in the water lines.
One way would be to remove the pump but thats a lot of work ,any ideas

Vodka... A little bit of baking soda, (not baking powder) or commercially available "water tank freshener", rinse a few times and the smell and taste are gone.
