Various thermometers for measuring and controlling the temperature of the swimming pool water.
Combined thermometersSeveral pocket meters are equipped to measure more than temperature. With some devices you can also use the PH value and chlorine value to measure.
Floating thermometersThese types of thermometers float around in the pool and can be divided into three types.
- Buoy thermometer floats by means of a buoy that is provided around the thermometer. Always easy to read while floating.
- classic floating thermometer, you must remove the thermometer from the water to read the temperature
- Mini thermometers are always provided with a dressed float such as a fish, dolphin or flamingo.
AquastateA aquastat usually used in combination with a heat exchanger. You can mount it in the pipe by means of a T-piece. By choosing the desired temperature, the aquastat can control the external heating such as the heat exchanger.
What is the ideal pool water temperature for swimming?Health tip: Swimming in water that is too warm (above 32°) can cause health problems. Your body converts effort into heat, when you swim in too warm water your body temperature can rise. At water temperatures below 15 degrees Celsius there is a risk of hypothermia and cardiac arrhythmias.
It is best to swim at a temperature between 25° and 28°This is about 10°C colder than the average body temperature. with pool water colder than 15°C there is a risk of hypothermia. A slightly higher than this ideal temperature applies to babies, toddlers, children, the elderly, the disabled and rheumatic patients: Disabled people and older people are generally less active. For babies from 0 to 12 months, the water temperature in the pool should be 32 degrees Celsius, for babies from 1 year old, the water should have a temperature of 30°-32°
