Temperature of pool in contention

 

CAMquestion@cfl.rr.com

Q. Our community of over 900 homes has an indoor and an outdoor pool. We obviously are unable to change the temperature of the outdoor pool since it is not heated. Our indoor pool, used all year, is a multipurpose pool and the temperature is set at 82 degrees with a fluctuation of 1 to 2 degrees as required for pool needs. With the various groups that use this pool the temperature is always a bone of contention and the board must put it on its agenda regularly for discussion. New residents always feel we should change the pool temperature to accommodate them even though our rules and regulations are clear on the issue and we have lappers who cannot swim in warmer water safely. There is a volleyball group that petitions the board also regularly to up the temperature. We are aware of all the negatives for warmer or colder water but it is becoming ridiculous how often we have to bring this up and discuss it. Is it possible to lay this issue to rest in your opinion?
