Thank you! My friend asked how I cool it down during the summer, so I figured I would make a little video out of it. I have to do this 2/3 nights a week or the temps would be around 95. It just feels so weird jumping in a pool that hot. lolGreat Video!!
I wish I had that issue, mine temp is around 82 but my pool is in a lot of shade
Yes that’s hot tub temp, had a cousin who went and bought 10 bags of ice to cool his down at a family reunionThank you!

Having the cage keeps most pools far cooler than without and, in fact, requires a heater in the summer in some instances. The cage probably cuts 60-70% of the sunlight.My current pool has a 1,300 sq ft cage over it
but I heard its better run it during the day? I dont know
These fountains DO NOT work because of the water/air temp difference.......they work because of the evaporative process that gives off heat. They are often more effective in the daytime than at night because of the relative humidity
so, if you were building again, would you have started with a chiller? PBs tell us with a waterfall, spillway from spa and deep end of 8 ft, we wouldn't need a chiller, but the pool will be in direct sunlightToo funny. I tried both shade sails and PVC misters. I could only get a few degrees of cooling and got tired of 90+ water temps. I bit the bullet and finally invested in a chiller. Best thing I have done for my pool in 13 years! We’ve been at 100+ with high humidity and my water temp has maxed at 82 so far this year. Humidity dropped today, so I expect water temp n the upper 70s by tomorrow. Perfect!

I use the same device. I just leave it on all the time now so it runs whenever the pump runs, which is 15 hours a day. With outdoor temperatures in the mid 90s, my pool is about 84 in the morning at 88-89 by sundown. This is my first year with the pool, but the water temp was creeping up on spa-like here in the dog days, so I bought the fountain. The water feels great, although I really don't know how hot it would get if I were not using the fountain. I gotta think it's helping.I made this little video showing the fountain I use to drop my pool temperature.
Let me know what you guys think.
I was stating the air temp for reference on how hot my pool water might be without the sprinkler. I get that it cools more effectively with lower humidity.You are missing the point about how these coolers work. Your air temp doesn't have much to do with it. It is the relative humidity that is important and this spread is greatest in the daytime.
BTW, we also have most of those features, with a 10’ deep end. We also had a fountain in the spa and even with the PVC misters, I could only get the water temps down to upper 80s during the day. Overnight, they would drop to mid-80s, but were approaching 90 again by afternoon, which is when the pool was mostly used.PBs tell us with a waterfall, spillway from spa and deep end of 8 ft, we wouldn't need a chiller, but the pool will be in direct sunlight
