Many people enjoy swimming or just wading in a swimming pool. The water can look very inviting and pristine in a well-kept pool. However, the temperature may be unyielding of comfort or relaxation. Swimming pool designs can have an effect on the water temperature in some areas of the pool. Sometimes, a pool is too cold. Other times, it can be too hot. The right temperature is often subjective or a matter of opinion. A great experience in a pool begins with properly cared for water and the water temperature.
From times past, the swimming pool has been a favourite place of professional competitors or individuals just wanting to be in or near the water. Additionally, moving in water is prescribed by medical personnel and aquatic physical therapist for patients who need gentle, strength training or people who have rehabilitative needs.
The temperature of indoor and outdoor pools can vary greatly depending on the weather conditions, especially if there is no water control that can be programmed. The pool needs to be monitored to help ensure that the temperature remains constant as much as possible. However, there are times when an adjustment is warranted. For instance, during winter months, the necessity to increase the temperature may exist because of colder temperatures. Also, if the atmospheric temperature is too hot the water needs to be as cool as possible.
