We've always used the pink antifreeze - ran the electric water pump with the taps open until all lines (hot and cold) were spitting air,put about four gallons of the pink stuff into both water tanks, then turn the pump back on, run the taps until you get pink stuff flowing and shut her down. No problems. The only drawback we've encountered was the multiple flushings of the system after breakup with fresh water, but that's not a bad thing, after all.
