Pink RV Antifreeze

Thanks to this site we had a successful bout against the deep freeze! In central Florida now trying to flush out the city water supply in the RV. Just how toxic is the Pink Antifreeze if we were to drink it? We did clear the water lines.

Did you put antifreeze in the fresh water tank?

I wouldn’t drink a cup of it and would do my best to flush it out. But I don’t think a little will hurt you any.

Non-toxic but don't drink. Just run each valve until there is no pink. Just the reverse if winterizing. Flush the toilet. Open the heater by past last. Open the outside shower. Never put antifreeze in your freshwater tank. Drain it. PS don't forget to drain you low point drains.

non Toxic, but doesn't taste great. Usually it is totally removed when people sanitize their water lines. You can just run fresh water through system via each faucet, drain. If you have outside shower don't forget that.

That's why it's recommended so many times, NOT to put it in your FW tank.
It will waste a lot of AF and it will take a lot of flushing to get rid of the taste.

It's the water lines that need to be worried about.

As long as the FW, black and gray tank have been drained, there's plenty room for what little liquids remain, to expand.
