I went in on Sunday at 70F after working in the yard all day. Pain and instant regret followed that decision.... I don’t see how anyone can tolerate anything below 75.I went in last week at 58F after working in the yard all day. Only stayed in about 3 seconds though.
77 is chilly 75 is freezing, 80 feels ok once you get used to it, 85 is perfect. 90 it starts to feel like warm bath water. Mine hardly ever reaches 90 as it’s mostly shaded.My pool is at 77 degrees now. I've gone in a few times but it still quite cold at first. This is my first year with a pool so I don't really have a baseline of what water temp I prefer. If 77 is cold, I'd think 83-85 will be my sweet spot. I also don't like when the pool is so warm that it's not refreshing which happens easily here. Won't take long to find out... it's warming up quickly.
