Power Out - Advice

Post by angelbearpuppy » Sat May 11, 2019 10:11 am

So. I wasn't worried to much the first day. I insulated and we were fine. Now any residue heat is gone. And the temp in the house is about 72. With a degree warmer in the tank. We were informed it might be as little as 3 days or as much as 5 days depending to get power back. Is there anything I should be concerned with.

I could take them to the hotel with us tonight. But I have at least one molter down right now. So I am trying to weigh different options.

Would they be fine in the 70s for a few days. I know HCA reccomends 80s

There have been a number of people who have had power outages over the past year or so.
If you search 'power outage' you will likely find some of the threads about what people did to keep their tanks warm during that time.

No hot water. But the power is scheduled to be on this evening. We will see.
