Possible alternative initial flush?

I have read many posts about flushing the cooling system and was wondering if using the Prestone flush and fill kit would be an option. I would not leave the tee in the system and you still need to end up with distilled water when done. I think you would still remove the thermostat. But maybe using this would get the junk out with less hassle and then you could rig up a 5 gallon (or bigger) container to it and use it to install the distilled water to the cooling system. Has anybody ever tried this on the 6.0? If so how did it work. What does everybody think about this?

It back flushes everything out of the degass bottle so it is hard to catch the flushed material. Yes you can use it to flush stuff out but you are still stuck with doing the final distilled flushes the manual way.

But you could rig up a container of some sort and hook it up and fill with distilled water and run it through.
