    Will we need it in August? :unsure:

    My concern is if the air temps are very high, :sun1: won't that make the water seem very cold? :shocked025:

    when your body is hot the water will seem cold at first but as soon as your temp drops it will be fine, but everyone says you will not need it in august, pull the cover over and keep the temp in does the trick too :)

    Depending upon which direction the pool is facing you may not need the heat on. If it's a southern exposure pool, then the August sun will take care of it quite nicely.

    If the pool remains in the shade for the majority of the high sun hours, then you may need it to take the chill off. All depends upon your personal preference.

    I want my pool warm. Very warm. :D

    Our Ieuan has been known to swim happily in 65 degree water! :eek: Strong, brave Welshman, he is! :yes:

    All up to your preference. :yes:

    You should be ok then. You'll get the high sun and the afternoon sun. That will make it nice for swimming when you return to your villa. :yes: That's what ours is, and we love it.

    Only thing to interfere is the afternoon rain. :sigh;

    Ah yes, the afternoon rain. I remember those wonderful storms. I assume the same rules apply when in the villa pool. Storm = no swimming?
