When I get flooded it takes about 6 months of dehumidifier and I save as much of that as I can. Probably have about 20 gallons around and I usually use that for the antifreeze and flushing. But we have a surplus of rain water this year. Freshly made!Here in eastern NC. our dehumidifier would fill up it's 2.5 gallon container every 5 days of use to keep our exercise room that was in an unattached garage. I would think that would work well, especially if you filtered it through a coffee filter for extra precautions.
We are having copious amounts of rain the last ten days.Rainwater is typically a pH 6 or lower because of CO2 dissolved. However, the antifreeze mix has a pretty hefty buffer, so it’s not likely to be depleted much by dissolution with rainwater.

Pure water (if you can keep it pure) is a very aggressive solvent.
One year I was monitoring the ambient CO2 during the summer. I found it peaked about 8am generally in the 600ppm and was lowest around 4pm in the 300ppm. So it depends on when the rain falls!
The native limestone around here is a great buffer. Maybe a couple of small pebbles in the overflow tank? Or use that to use for fill water? It also has a lot of iron in it.However, it’s going to be overwhelmed by whatever buffer is in the coolant. Just don’t pour it straight in.
