    Winter swimming

    My pool temperature in winter/spring is around 60 degree. Thinking I may be able to swim laps in my pool in winter if I put on a wet suit. I saw people selling whole body wet suit for water sports. Does anyone swim in your pool in winter / spring with your wet suit on? How cold does it feel? What is your water temp? Does the uncovered parts like face, hands and feet feel too cold?

    Man, I won't be much help here. I like it about 88 when I get in.

    Ditto for me. My target temperature is 87 degrees, which is where I hope to be by tomorrow.

    REALLY?!? I need to do a bunch of roof work before I can fire up my solar. If I got it going I imagine the water would start warming up pretty quickly. Too bad I keep going camping and offroading instead of working around the house

    I've been in my pool at 70 with a swimsuit on. It was pretty invigorating!
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
