How many people run their recirculate all day long during a tournament or do you put them on a timer. I have been having problems with them draining my battery which will turn my graphs off during the day. I have a blue top optima cranking battery (which is brand new). I dont want my battery to drain down but I dont want to have fish die on me either. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

I don't run them while on water, no need, fresh water in old out all day. I run the recirculate pump on timer when I get off. May put a little ice prior depending on water temp.

When I bought my "new to me" boat, there were a couple of 2 litter bottles in the livewell, I can only assume the former owner froze them and put them in the livewell during the summer to keep temps down.
