    Nothing, just stop the metal parts of the system freezing, valves, taps etc. The water if 100% pure won't freeze in this country. I have had mine still liquid at -15° when we were testing.
    If you were to add IPA to it you would need a 10% solution (this is based around the 10% being 99% IPA) to make a slight difference to tap water. So in a 500l tank you would need 50l of 99% IPA ££££

    In 2010 we got it rough in our area for around two weeks.

    We made a very weak solution of pure water and isopropanol. As long as you don't go mad it stops water from freezing.

    This only helps with hose,jets and fittings. The water will still freeze on windows and paths.
