Had the same problem. My big mistake was the water heater. I drained it and used the bypass valve to exclude it from the system when putting in the antifreeze. But the mistake was turning the bypass valve back on to allow water into the WH before I flushed the antifreeze out of my pipes. The pink stuff got in my WH during the flushing process and took forever to flush out of the system. So to fix that mistake I turned the bypass valve to winterize again and drained the WH and then flushed out the system with a gallon of bleach diluted in water, turned the WH bypass valve back to normal ran the hot and cold water and let the bleach/water sit in my pipes and WH for 24 hrs before draining WH and flushing out the bleach w. fresh water. After that the water was great. Greg

Some of the boaters at the yacht club didn't like the taste so used cheap vodka to winterize.
