B-ball antifreeze?

What can I use in my B-Ball hoop’s Ballast tank to keep from freezing, that will be ok to drain when the time comes?

Works well but it does freeze at very low temperatures. You should be fine if you don't live in Antarctica I guess.

Thanks all thats what I went with, I just want to be able to drain it at some point this winter, slush is fine ,eco friendly is paramount. I filled it a bit more then half way and put a couple of sandbags on top. Filled so it won’t tip if someone uses the sand this winter.

I filled mine from the garden hose back in.... maybe 2009?

a bit South of New England here, but we have plenty of long stretches of well below freezing temps ( just not yet this year thankfully!)

I have to be able to move it out of the way for the snow plow this winter, and possibly to another house in Feb. I am using sand bags on top of the tank for balast, and some liquid inside JIC the sand bags get gonnifed for traction sand. If the liquid inside freezes solid then A) it doesnt flow to the front when it is tipped to make rolling easier, and B) cannot be drained / disasembled when the time comes.
