Heat with corny kegs

I am running my bio through 2 corny kegs with wood chip and was wondering if you have to have it heated up to run properly.I am using the method that Jeff from Sun Bio is using but using chips instead of Purolite but does it need to be heated to run properly.Mine is running but seems to be getting very slow and hard to keep the flow going as its get colder at nights.Its down to 40 tonight and I can not get it to flow at all.Thanks

I would just think that the outlet area is too small at the bottom of the keg, ie there is no drainage area. Perhaps use something like an upside down collander (or a perforated smaller lid) to cover the hole before filling the keg up with shavings. That would increase the drainage area feeding the outlet.

I have about 3 inches of marbles on the bottom with a hose and then a screen on top of it,so the chips do not get to the bottom.
