Winterizing

Besides the other reasons mentioned (corrosion protection, et al), I wouldn''t use windshield washer fluid for another reason. Washer fluid typically contains methanol as its anti-freeze, and methanol deteriorates rubber. I see the potential for problems in hoses, impellers, etc.

FWIW,
