Posted by Jim Metzger | Feb 28, 2019 12:56:28 PM

Indoor pools add value and year-round enjoyment to your property, whether you have one in your hotel, gym, spa, or private residence. Maintaining appropriate water temperature is critical to continued pool satisfaction. Most indoor pool operators heat pool water 2–4°F below the pool room’s air temperature to minimize and control evaporation.
