Ack! What did I drain?

Adventures in DYI!

I had to replace the hose returning fluid from my hot water heater to the heat exchanger on my Universal M25. In doing so I drained what looked like pink antifreeze from the HX, out of the wingnut-type drain. Grunts, goans, profanity- hose replaced.

Now I'm wondering if I drained antifreeze out of the raw-water side of the system, or if that was coolant in the fresh water side. If it was the RW side, should I replace the fluid before starting? And if its the fresh water side, I'm sure I have to replace it, but don't know how. Could someone give me a hand before I melt down my silver beauty?!

Thanks,
Ed
