Maintaining a Healthy Swimming Pool Temperature

An important announcement brought to you by The Pool Doctors of the Palm Beaches.

Too many pool owners don’t adhere to proper pool heating methods and fail to keep the temperature in their pools at a desired level.

Why is swimming pool heating and temperature so important?

A pool with hot water can lead to harmful effects on swimmers, including:

  • Dehydration

  • Muscle cramps

  • Skin burn

Did you know that a swimming pool filled with too much warm water can promote the growth of bacteria and become difficult to treat with chemicals?

Water that is too cold can also be detrimental to a person’s health.

  • Cold water can kill you in less than a minute.

  • Water temperatures below 77°F affect breathing and lower body temperatures.

  • Water temps below 60°F are very dangerous and are immediately life threatening.

According to all major water sports authorities, an ideal water temperature for competitive swimming is between 77°F to 82°F.

Maintaining swimming pool temperatures is simple with the addition of heat pumps.
