I have been winterizing for a few years, and have friends that have been doing it forever, and no one has had pipes burst from the antifreeze. I would not worry about it.

But is the stuff with propylene glycol safe for drinking water systems? Just curious....

Propylene glycol is considered non-toxic and in fact is employed in the food industry. I dealt with this product some years years ago as a OHS safety manger and as such can confirm that it's considered it safe for drinking water systems provided the proper flush and prep is carried out for said drinking system.
