Avoid the cold-water shock by using swimming pool accessories - It's probably happened to all of us at one time or another. You're outside playing a sport or exercising, you're drenched in sweat, you run to dive in the pool and … YIKES! The water is freezing! Unfortunately, water is water and it doesn't change colors if it's super freezing or warm. So, to prevent future frozen shockage, pick up one of the more valuable pool accessories – the pool thermometer.
Aside from knowing when to swim, pool thermometers can tell you if your pool heater is on the fritz. Pool thermometers cost around $8 to $20 bucks. They can either float in the pool or they can attach to a rope and hang on the side of the swimming pool.
*If you don't have the best eyesight make sure the thermometer you buy has some sort of magnifier on the numbers so you can read the results with no problems.
