  • If you have the orginal box, it is best to store in the box, you have them. Otherwise place them inside clear plastic storage tote to protect them from dust.
  • Stack containers by putting heavier items on the bottom. Anything that would get damaged by temperature or moisture changes should also be stored in a container, up off of the floor.
  • Label each bin. List all of the items in the container; that way, if you remove some items for use, you’ll know where they go when returning them.
  • Remove water and hoses and tanks. Water can remain behind in hoses and tanks after you remove them from the outlet sources. This can cause severe problems like mold and potential breakage from freezing if you don’t drain them out before storage.
