Hi I'm Wayne

I will help you with this

It will not freeze the reservoir solid, thin ice,

but your pipes are going to freeze

a lot smaller, you would have to open faucets and let trickle

to keep from freezing

I hope this helped you

This depends on the ambient temps. IF the temps are staying below freezing the reservoir will gradually freeze more and more until it is frozen solid. Then it may break. The line would freeze up UNLESS you winterize this and then you would be protected. You might be able to insulate the tank some and prevent this BUT the key here is the "offgrid" you mentioned. That tells me there is no power available and so leaving the faucets open won't work due to no power. Please let me know if I didn't get the circumstances correct and it might change my answer here. All follow ups are included in our fee.

Perhaps discussing the actual conditions where you are would be best and avoid any errors based on wrong assumptions. I live and have a shop in an area where this is a common problem and you sure don't want to make a mistake in this as it can be costly to repair later.
