Forum Title: freeze protect question
I have not yet closed the pool it is still around 65 water temp during the day but we are getting below freezing at night (not the water). I am not too terribly concerned as we are just barely hitting freezing. But, should I add my waterfalls into my freeze-protect settings? Right now just the pump is covered. If I add the waterfalls I assume it will turn them on and then increase speed to 3000 rpms. Also does my freeze protect (Jandy) kick in when the water temp hits near freezing or is it air temp only? If the former then I have nothing to worry about I think.

I do not know about the freeze protect, but until you have a few long nights of below 32* weather, you are fine. When are you closing your pool? It is time.

Jandy freeze protect kicks in based on the temp sensor plugged into slots 7 & 8 on the green 10-pin connector. That should be your air temp sensor unless it was swapped at some point for trouble shooting. They call that one the Air/Freeze Temp Sensor in the manuals.

It still jumps 3-4 more during the day so I'll give it another week. I think. Chlorine usage is just about nill.
