I once used the alcohol based version. It contains a "bitterant" to discouraging one from drinking it. It left a taste in my water lines for over a week. I now only use the glycol version. Cost a little more, but worth it.

I second the simple process of blowing the lines and RV antifreeze in the traps. Has worked well for me for 9 years here in the NJ winters.

I have resolved myself to not drink or brush my teeth with whatís in the fresh water tank. Iíve got a couple gallons of pink Peak antifreeze in the AS and Iíll go with that in the lines and traps. Iíll flush out the antifreeze in Spring and ponder on tapping into a five gallon tank of clean fresh water to be kept in the cabin. Thanks for the input everyone.

Amended post. I now, this year for the first time have blown the lines and added two gallons of RV anti freeze to the entire system except the hot water heater. Reason after so many years is I had a real problem clearing all the water out for some reason, gave up and did the anti freeze bit.
