Hi All This is

(Normal) checking in
Went for a swim this morning in our not
so heated pool. They have dropped the temperature and
opened some of the sliding doors. That cool wind was
to much blowing in. They put wood stoppers so they can
not be closed. Hay we are old people and hurt all over most
of the time.

 I think we will have  to do our aerobic exercise
in the hot tub with The Bennie
 I have been working out in the gym 20 min on treadmill
 15 on the bike, may have to skip the pool this winter.
 We have been told that the pool temperature will not 
be higher------ now or this winter.   What a downer!

Sounds like a wonderful way to start your day :)

Patsy, What a pretty pool. I take an Arthritis Aquatic class three mornings a week in a heated pool. I have been told the Arthritis Association recommends a certain "warm" temperature. The water should be kept warm as too hard on older people. I hope management changes its mind and "turns on the heat".

WHY are they doing this, have you asked anyone? I wonder if it is to save money? Not right!

Mildred said...

What a pretty place to get some exercise IF they would warm up the water temp. Do they keep it cooler for health reasons?

Karen said...

I would vote for warmer water or the hot tub for sure! And close the door!

You have such nice facilities. I could use the whirlpool right now.

Vee said...

Can you take a vote? Seems very arbitrary to me! It sure is a beautiful pool.

Mari said...

I wonder why they are being so funny about the temperature? Good for you for doing all that!

I would complain everyday and send emails and letters and maybe even make a sign of protest and walk around the building where the Board of Directors were meeting...seems like they would encourage their "folks" to be comfortable :(

That's such a shame it looks a beautiful pool. Do you know what the temperature is? For safety it should be about 28 degrees no more. If it's higher there is more risk of bacteria as chlorine doesn't work so well at high temps, but if it's lower it's uncomfortable.

We had a new pool built here in the town & it's cooler than the older one but it has a different system of minimising the bacteria using bio filters which means you don't come out smelling of chlorine & your bathing costumes last longer. It does mean the water is slightly cooler but once you get in & start to swim it's fine.

Maybe you could ask them about the temperature & check it out. No point in having a lovely pool if it's never going to get used.
