Therapy Pool
Q&A with Therapy Pool Directors Alethea Crespo and Leilani Scholtz

What is the Therapy Pool Temperature?
The therapy pool thermostat is set to 91° which means the range of temperature can be plus or minus one or two degrees.  The pool heater works much like the heater in your house. When the thermostat is set to 68°, the heater may not turn on until the temperature falls to 66°. The heater will stay on until the temperature rises slightly above the set temperature, then turns off and stays off until the temperature falls to 66° again. The thermostat maintains the air temperature within a range of two to three degrees. This difference in temperature is the hysteresis. Thus, the pool temperature does fluctuate throughout the day, but the average should be 91°.
Why does it feel warmer or cooler on some days?
The air temperature plays a large role in how the water temperature is perceived on our skin; the warmer the day, the less difference we feel when we walk into the pool. In the winter months, when the air temperature is cooler, we notice when the water temperature is on the lower end of the hysteresis. Body heat is lost in water much faster than when exercising on land. Children and people with little body fat will lose body heat faster and feel colder more quickly, being more active will create body heat internally and thus they will feel warmer.
By wearing a long sleeve rash guard or long sleeve wet vest during the cooler winter months, the difference in water temperature may be less noticeable.
What is the best temperature for a therapeutic pool?
The “best” temperature depends on many factors. For example, 91 or 92° water may be perfect for the arthritic patron, but is too warm for the pregnant woman or a patron with multiple sclerosis. For patrons that wish to lose weight and thus must perform cardiovascular exercise, 91° may be too warm as they get more fit and are able to be more active in the water. Some say that a range of 89.6° to 93.2° may best for a therapeutic pool.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to set the pool temperature to the perfect temperature for each individual. The next best option is to choose a temperature that will benefit the majority.
The temperature of the water is monitored regularly to ensure proper function of the heating system. Please do not ask the lifeguards to change the thermostat; if the water temperature is not within the expected range, facilities management will work to resolve the problem.
