    Guys, those of you who use the wfp method only, how many of you go out and clean windows when its -1 to -4, knowing the water will freeze on the floor?

    Do you go out and clean the windows, or like me wait until the temp rises a bit to like 1c... (and I know time is money).

    I'll clean down to -1. Anything below that and I'll wait until its warmed up a bit.

    I've just been out and done one side of a first clean then packed up as it's just not worth it. I'm now looking for a cheap way to heat the water.

    Was looking at fitting an immersion heater to my tank or a propane water heater.
