    Water Temp

    Our water temp hit a high of 92 today. (Pool is in full sun all day and our air temps have been in the high 90s.) What's a normal temp range?

    Re: Water Temp

    Sounds like you are about there. I have full sun all day and with temps in the high 90's (a few day over 100 lately) my ware also topped out at 92. I have wireless thermometer so i can look at the temp form my computer and at this moment it has dropped back to 89.9. By the morning I figure it will be 87 and then back over 90 tomorrow. I do not use a solar cover to hold the heat in.

    I have a friend in Ft. Lauderdale that can get the water to 100 if he runs the solar all day.....
