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.
