Facility Rules and Regulations

ARC Pool Water Temperature: Our water temperature varies from 83 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit (28 to 30 degrees Celsius) year round.This is the most comfortable temperature for typical water fitness classes and general aquatic programming. This allows the body to react and respond normally to the onset of exercise and the accompanying increase in body temperature. Cooling benefits are still felt and there is little risk of overheating.
