    Pool Pilot Digital and cold water

    Is it bad for the Pool Pilot to be running in 65 degree water? I opened the pool and it was fairly warm (water temp in mid 70s) but now that everything is up and running the water temp is down to 65 (thank you lovely Connecticut weather!)

    Should I switch back to liquid until the water warms up to a consistent 70s or higher?

    It won't hurt anything to run it at 65 degrees.

    Additional info: The system has a feature called temperature compensation that will auto adjust the purifier % based on water temperature. Basically in cooler water it produces less chlorine or more chlorine in warmer water. At 55 degrees it will lock out at 1% purifier output to prevent over-chlorination and conserve cell life.
