    Supposed to have a hard freeze tonight, about 30 degrees. I have not blown out a few systems. What to do? Should I worry about the RPZ? Thanks in advance.

    I would not consider 30 degrees a hard freeze.

    I would only worry if it stays below freezing for an extended period of time. Over night is nothing to worry about at 30 degrees. If your really concerned, wrap some towels around it.

    Exactly. Freeze we had last year, it was 17 for a low, in Phoenix. and few had problems. None at my place.
