Just curious what do you use to "T" to the garden hose input? Just a brass (edit: bronze) T then a valve? (nipple, threaded, whatever)
The Groco safety valve attaches directly to the thru-hull. Comes in various sizes.

I winterize my engine by pulling the water in and exhaust out hose and drop them in a 5 gallon bucket with antifreeze. I don't see why you couldn't do the same with a bucket of fresh water for your generator. I run water down the exhaust pipe to keep it cool while running the motor.

In that diagram it shows a vane type pump for the antifreeze but no pumps needed when used to empty bilge. Any reason raw water impeller pump can't pull antifreeze from a bucket?
