    Freeze guard, can I bypass it??

    Wife and I were enjoying the spa last night with the snowflakes dropping ever so lightly... Enjoying some 90+ temps then the freeze guard kicked on!!!!

    I'm wondering if there is a way to bypass it, at least while we're in there. I know it's there for a reason, but so am I!

    Please let me know if that can be done.

    Is your spa running off of the equipment listed in your signature box? Or is your spa a portable above ground unit?

    Normally you would not want to disable or bypass the freeze guard. Can you simply turn off the pump while you are using the spa?

    The spa is connected to the pool equipment. Not sure if I could turn the pump off... Wouldn't that make the water cycling through the heater to stop too?

    You can turn freeze protection on or off in the programming but I'm not sure it's worth the trouble for one time.
