Ltd. shows that continuous hot water circulation until the discharge temperature reaches 36 F is usually satisfactory for avoiding freeze-ups; however, sufficient circulation time must be allowed for ground temperatures to stabilize and establish a "heat sink" sufficient to prevent freezing during a 24 hr hydrostatic test period.
