Winterizing - Source for antifreeze?

So, I know that I can get the pink, non-toxic antifreeze at Walmart. Any other sources?

In particular, I will be on the Langley Bypass this afternoon, but other readers might be interested in other sources.

Lowes, Home Depot are a couple more in the Lower 48 anyway. Pretty common, and pretty inexpensive.

Re: Winterizing - Source for antifreeze?

After wandering around the Langley WallyWold for a few minutes, I found a short RV aisle with sewer hoses and stuff in the middle of the automotive section. There was a big, empty shelf for Prestone Plumbing A/F.

Better luck next time, I guess. Still some weeks before a freeze is posssible here.

I finally found some at Canadian Tire. Had to ask where. It was in the plumbing aisle, had a polar bear on the label, and cost $5.

Finally winterized. Next week we might see some real freezing in Vancouver.

Yup. I got my anti-freeze at Canadian Tire too. They had two brands to choose from. The one without the picture of the polar bear cost $1 less. They were both rated for the same temps. But, you had no choice I guess. I had to ask where it was and even then had a hard time finding it.
