I will be selling it and I'm wondering what the best way to prep it is? Drain and dis connect? Or just drain and ship... Any tips would be awesome

I think it would depend on how long it will be sitting dormant AND what comfort zone the buyer has with reconnecting things.

I would think it safe to drain it fully, reseal the loop, and ship it so long as it isn't stay dry for a long time - algea growth as some moisture will still be in the loop.

If it's going to be down for awhile, you could disconnect allow the tubes and blocks to fully dry out before shipping. If the buyer isn't comfortable with reinstall, this option is moot.

I would also note, that either way, I would suggest advising the buyer to do a leak test prior to firing up the system. Ya never know what could bump loose in shipping
