    2 speed pump and freeze warning?

    I have a 2 speed pump that I normally run on low. The next couple nights here in the Florida panhandle are calling for temps down in the 20's so I know I will need to have the pump running overnight. My question is, is it ok to continue running on low during the freezetimes? Or are you supposed to run on high?
    I'm pretty sure that low is enough, but just wanted to confirm this with you guys since this is the first time I have dealt with a hard freeze and the pool.

    Low speed should be fine. You just need some water moving in all of the pipes, it doesn't need to be moving very quickly.
