Did anyone ever notice that new replacement seals do not come in a container of liquid?

HI Art,
It's been a long time since we have talked!

I have used RV antifreeze from Walmart ever since we got the Casita and never had a problem with the toilet or any of the plumbing.
I first blow out the lines then add RV antifreeze pump it into the system and add extra to the toilet to keep the seal pliable.

May I ask why you bother to blow the lines out if you running antifreeze thru them, the antifreeze just pushes the water out ahead of it. Soon as I start seeing pink, I go to the next one.

As far as using my air compressor , and seen what drains out of the bottom ,when I drain the water from it. I would need some kind of filter system on my compressor before I would blow that air into my water lines on an RV.

The compressor is handy and adding RV antifreeze is extra protection ,
My BIL only blow out his system and some of the water was left in the toilet valve and it froze and cracked it. It works for me and it's cheep to do.

Thanks to all who responded.

"I can't resist...do you have poopsicles? " At the risk of sounding dumb ID man, I can't resist asking---what do you mean by `popsicles?" Ah, after rereading I see I dropped an o. Nah, just worried about ice damaging the seal.

Hi J Herb. Good to hear from you.

Pretty sure you mean "bowl" and not "bowel", unless you're addressing the problem from further up the supply chain.
