RV Antifreeze

Is the pink Antifreeze environmental safe? If I dump on the ground will it kill grass and the dog? If it is dangerous where do I dispose?

Great question

Label on my container say "Combustible", nothing about disposal. Dog might catch on fire

The stuff I use is non toxic, and is GRAS-(generally regarded as safe) by the food and drug administration (FDA)
So to me that means its safe to dump anywhere. Plus when you dewinterize it will be dilluted by your fresh water

Oh and I've used for years in my boat, and It never hurt my bermuda grass when I drained it.

It's chemically related to cool whip so it probably isn't too harmful.

When you winterize or de-winterize a boat, you pump it overboard into the water. Its safe for that and safe to dump on the ground or into a sanitary sewer.

With the exception of the outside shower all of the antifreeze till end up in a black or gray tank, just fill what ever tank with water and dilute the AF.
It took two gallons of AF for me to winterize the lite both my gray and black tanks are over 40 gallons each.
So 80 +/- gallons of water mixed (more or less) with 2 gallons of AF and 1 1/4 cup of bleach.
Ya it can go on the grass.
