I upgraded to a Jandy VSFHP185DA2A recently with the iQPUMP01 pump interface and the iAquaLink app. I've been through the settings and documentation and can't find any references to freeze protection. The iAquaLink app has a setting for a freeze run time (I forget what it was called exactly), but it's not clear how this mode gets activated. I checked on the system when it was around 35°F and it was not running. Do you have to step up to a different controller to get this feature? I had this functionality with my single-speed pump and would like to get it back if possible.

I've closed the pool this year in anticipation of a new liner so it's not currently an issue. Worst case I can set up a 24-hour schedule for winter mode.

The only reference to this feature I can find anywhere is in the AquaLink RS control system. That would really be overkill on my simple system.

Interesting, there is a secret there. Apparently you have to be in ad-hoc Wi-Fi mode to unlock those global pump settings. I presume this is a security mechanism. It would be nice if they greyed those settings out instead of totally hiding them. So far my review of this iAquaLink app is that it is "Not There Ware". (n) I guess the time zone is in there too, I was wondering how the **** to set that.

This was in the iQPump01 quick start guide but I missed it.

Thanks!
