[QUOTE=Cosmicwaves;1104874]They CLAIM that all pools are heated to 80+ degrees all year, but when we were at Caribbean Beach last month, they were most certainly NOT heated. Quite cold actually, even though they were having a warm snap (upper 70s/low 80s). Maybe it was a maintenance issue, but I have a feeling they were pinching pennies.[/QUOTE]
A pool doesn’t begin to feel warm until it is near skin temp and that’s around 93-95.
That’s why, when I do turn on my heater, I have to set it to 91, and even then, it tops out at about 89.
