That is one option. Another option is to use a controller which will
circulate water enough to keep the sensitive parts of the collector
from freezing. This could be say five minutes an hour. This does
reduce the temperature of the store a little, but it may be an
appropriate option in some circumstances.
Another option is to let it freeze, the approach taken by Solartwin.

disability, was stoned and/or drunk and was raving something about a keyring
supposedly had. No idea what that was about.
I told him to leave 3 times. He didn't. I held out the cordless phone that I'd
picked up on the way to the door and told him that I'd call the cops if he didn't
immediately leave. He yelled "I'll show you 911" as he reached to draw his gun

Fortunately for me I was faster. When I saw the butt of the gun clear jacket, I
