IDK. but just above freezing seems to be best, as the greater the diff between ambient air temp. and water temp. would hasten the heat loss, and up the power usage.

I raised meat rabbits when living in MI, and believe me, the winters there are harsh. I used to keep a tub of water in the bunny barn with a tank de-icer in it. Having two water bottles per cage, I'd put the frozen ones in the tub, and replace the thawed ones on each cage. This worked well for me.
