It seems no matter where one lives this summer, there have been some record-breaking heat waves. If you have a backyard swimming pool, you are probably spending a lot of time in the water. However, if that water feels more like bath water and less like a refreshing basin of bliss, you may want to make a few adjustments from a temperature perspective. After all, not only do you want to keep your cool; you also want your pool to stay cool. When the pool water temperature gets too high, it’s just not as refreshing as you might like it. So how do you cool your pool in the summer?
You could just purchase a huge block dry ice and see what happens. In reality, you will probably just have big blocks of ice floating around in the pool with you, as well as lots of fog. Ideal for penguins and Halloween parties. Not so much for the casual swimmer. Besides, hauling those huge blocks of ice into your backyard might not be the easiest thing to do. So, let’s just explore a few other ways to cool down the water temperature in your inground backyard pool. We promise these should be a lot easier and far more reasonable to put into effect.
