Are you sure you held the pedal down long enough for the pink stuff to get there?
Can you here the pump run when you press the pedal??

Hi, thanks for the response, the pump is working as antifreeze comes out of faucets but not into toilet. How long do you think I have to hold pedal down? It has never done this before. Don’t want line to freeze. Thanks!

Do you get water or air when you press the pedal?

Hopefully someone else will chime in here
If the toilet was working fine before you started winterizing i can't think of any reason for this

Well... your going to need to remove the line from the toilet valve, have someone turn on the pump (for just a second or so) and see if antifreeze comes out the line.

If it does, the common issue is the screened inlet of the toilet valve is likely caked with crud.
If it doesn't come out the line, you'll need to diagnose plumbing issues.
