    It takes a significant amount of time below freezing before you will have a freezing problem ... although a lot of wind can speed things up.

    Being slightly below 32 degrees for a few hours is not likely a problem.

    Toss a blanket or jacket over it if you're very worried. Although it takes a lot to run into a problem. I had one running this year in mid-April with temps in the 40's with no problems.

    My water temp is 43 and we had 2 nights of 24/27degress last weekend. My system has freeze protection so the pump just stayed running. No issues at all. I did throw a wool blanket over the filter just in case. Doing final cleaning after pouring the concrete then will do final winterization this next week.

    Thanks fellas,,just wanted to be sure-- I did throw blanket over pump but I dont think it was needed. Planning on closing tomorrow,water temp is 56 degrees. Longer than I have left it open before but I hope it (and an early opening) will make things easier come next season.
