IF you blow out the lines first, and then add the antifreeze, you should be fine reusing it. Take a sample of the reclaimed fluid and put it in the freezer, and if it doesn't slush up you are ok. You are saving the environment and being a good steward of nature.

IMHO

Actually, AF can turn slushy and still be fine. It simply doesn't expand like water does when it freezes.

The repairs from burst plumbing would greatly exceed the cost of a few gallons of RV antifreeze if you choose to be "penny wise and pound foolish". I've seen VERY good prices for RV antifreeze at Menards in the fall. I buy at least a case (six gallons) every fall once Menards has it on sale. Then I have it when I need / want to winterize.

We winterize, re-winterize several times a season. Use compressed air, anti-freeze in the traps. Never an issue.
