30C-34C is about 86F-93F! That temp will generally feel too warm for most people in a pool.

A better temp that would suit more people would be around 27C-29C or 80F-84F. The water will still feel warm but still be refreshing when you're swimming.


I think for 30-34 degree centigrade ambient temperature, the pool temperature should be around 81 F (approx. 27 degree C). This will make body feel fresh.

For a ambient temperature of around 25 degree C and below, the pool temperature should be slightly higher at 30 - 32 deg C.

I run a health club and have always had my pools at the following:

Depending on the water temp the ambient temperature should be 1 degree higher. Ideally the pool should be 29 - 30 with an ambient temp of 31 degrees

You don't really want pool water any higher than 30 as it starts to cause problems with the water.

Higher temps will increase evaporation - causing the amount of dissolved solids to increase, it also means the disinfectant will be burnt off and the total alkalinity will also increase - this will cause all the pipes to fur up just like a kettle does.
