    Take it inside at night and keep it fairly warm during the day, it's fine.

    Thanks for the help. Im having a plumber change a few fittings on some drain pipes and I didnt know how concerned I should be with the below freezing temperatures as night but I guess as long as it has time to set through the day then they should be fine.

    You should check the can to see what the temp. range is. Oatey makes one thats good to 5 deg.
