Freeze Protection settings

goyomNovember 5, 2010

I was looking at my freeze protection settings and noticed my pump can be set for a range of 34-44 degrees.

With the cold snap last year of several days with no temps above 31 for 3 days straight, thats alot of pump time for both my filter pump and water feature pump!

Would it be easier to just set the heater on say 40 degrees and leave it that way and run the pump a few times a day, or is the constant run of the pumps the way to go ?

Thanks for any input1

Constant run is the safer way. If the heater ices up, you'll have a major problem.
