Haven't checked this year but I totally freaked last year when our pink stuff froze. Ours is rated -50. It got pretty cold here in MI last year (and this year). All was fine.

I set a full gallon jug out last night. It is supposed to get into the negative digits tonight without wind chill. I'll try to post a pic in the morning of the results

Put 4oz Peak -50F RV antifreeze in metal container out last night, This am temp was 1F and the pink stuff has a consistency of thick slush. Certainly would not burst water line, but would not go through pump ot spigot.

Checked this morning when I came home from work. Thermometer says it got down to 0.9 last night. The bottle is not even slushy. I think I will be ok as I blew the lines out in the RV before pumping the antifreeze through.

You can't compare "exposed" pink stuff freeze status, when the container is subjected to moving air across the surface. That produces a "wind chill" factor, which rapidly lowers the temperature of the medium as the ambient temperature drops.

My observatoon; -50 degree burst protection, Peak brand, still in liquid state at -5 F in protected location.

This sure is sounding like a product stated quality issue. Otherwise, why would the same stated -50 burst rated pink stuff, have different states of consistancy (totally liquid vs slushy) when the temperatures are what is being observed.

Just curious, have you noticed any distortion in the shape of the container. I'd be curious to know if expansion occured with the pink stuff freezing solid. Just sayin'
