    Any way to bring water temps back down?

    My water temperatures have climbed into the 90s and it's too warm to really enjoy the pool. Is there any way to bring the temperature back down?

    Aeration at night.

    Basically set up a line from one of more returns that comes up out of the water and sprays the return water back into your pool. Kind of like a showerhead.

    You can make your own or buy a fountain head that connects to one of your pool returns. It sprays a fountain of water into the pool. My temp was at 94 last Friday. I ran it overnight as we had lows in the low 70's and by morning our water was at 84 degrees.

    This is is a link to the one I bought at a local pool store. Keep an eye on your PH as it will rise from all the aeration.
