For most people (us included!) as long as the water is warm and doesn’t cause you to do a cartoonish jump out of the pool once you hit the water, then that’s perfect! There will be some instances though that jumping into the pool will feel like jumping into warm soup and that’s really no fun!
For all around use, Australian swimming pool temperatures are best around 26 degrees Celsius to 28 degrees Celsius. 26 degrees if you’re planning on some brisk swimming and the less activity you plan to do, the closer to 28 you should set the pool’s temperature to. Now, is this is the “perfect” and average temperature for the pool, then what’s the point of the article right? Well, there are some situations that call for different pool temperatures for that perfect swim session!
