What's your pool temperature?This is a very sub­jec­tive top­ic. One man’s luke­warm is anoth­er man’s bit­ter cold. Depend­ing on who uses your pool and how they use it, keep­ing every­one hap­py is a tall order. But some guide­lines would be help­ful, right?  How com­fort­able the pool tem­per­a­ture is depends on the person’s activ­i­ty in the pool. Below are some sug­ges­tions for water tem­per­a­tures for var­i­ous activ­i­ties.

High­ly com­pet­i­tive swimming…….78 – 80 degrees

Swim­ming lessons (begin­ners)……

Preschool……………………….88 – 94 degrees

3–5 years…………………………86 – 90 degree

6–13 years……………………….84 – 84 degrees

Aqua Aerobics……………….…78 – 82 degrees

A gen­er­al rule of thumb is that the old­er or younger the per­son, the high­er they tend to like the tem­per­a­ture (up to a cer­tain point). So for seniors and preschool­ers, keep it warm!

Please note:  High aer­o­bic activ­i­ty in high-tem­per­a­ture water can be dan­ger­ous.  If your pool is used for a vari­ety of uses and activ­i­ty lev­els keep in mind that the aver­age tem­per­a­ture of indoor mul­ti-use pools is 84 – 86 degrees.
