57 ? The past three nights have been near freezing. I've got the pool covered with a big poly tarp due to grackles dropping :poop: all over our backyard, pool, cars, everything. If it weren't for those stupid birds, I'd be fully open and have the heater going as it's supposed to be getting into the 70's and 80's over the next week or so. Hopefully it will be over by June - I want to swim!!!

Currently sitting around 82 with no heat during the week. Heater brings it back to swimming temps (86-88) in a couple of hours. No cover, just use the heater in anticipation of swimming this time of the year.

Opened two weeks ago because I was bored and it was nice out. After getting snow last weekend in still sitting at 56°. Hopefully this promised pattern chance this weekend starts climbing. Haven't added a drop of chlorine yet and still have plenty ugh

Yeah its been cold here too. The water is at 72 only because it was 80 today but prior to today its been 50's and 60's or colder. I've just started testing my water and I'm attempting to make corrections now that the forecast appears to be heading towards 70's more consistently. 2020 isn't cooperative in any form or fashion. :cautious:

Ours is at 86F right now, which the south facing solar can easily maintain even on a fairly cool (mid 60s) and breezy day. Covering it at night helps a lot. It usually only loses 4-6 degrees overnight.

Just walked by my solar pool heater control panel and it says 87, targeting 90. It will probably be around 89 when I'm ready to jump in for some night swimming after work. :p

Minus the rain on and off next week, the temperatures are finally going to be pointed in the right direction for warmer weather. I can't wait! Just working on my water chemistry and biding my time. LOL

73. I bought a nice buoyant lounge chair from Sam's last year- if you can stand to get in the pool and manage to get on it- you can enjoy the sun and just about stay out of these frigid temps :)
You just described the life of The Float Queen perfectly! My big lounger floats that I can float on without getting wet are awesome for the lower water temperatures but warm weather and sun! ?
