Re: Flushing Coolant System......??

I now live right on the water and I'm concerned about contaminating it with spillage from flushing

Very cool Crow!
When I do my vehicles, I just drain the fluid (into a sealable container), fill up the radiator with R/O or distilled water, run it around the block a few times, drain the water, then fill it back up with the proper mix.
The R/O (Reverse Osmosis) water is completely free from minerals, and does a really good job at disolving the crud in the radiator.
I take the container with the old coolant down to a local shop that has seperate recycling containers for oil, coolant, etc.
