The water in the Aquaplex pool is the same temperature throughout the pool.

This fact was volunteered by Drumheller CAO Darryl Drohomerski, who added the temperature of the pool remains consistently at 86 degrees Farenheit.

"It's 86 degrees, which is pretty warm, like it's on a the warmer side for a pool," stated Drohomerski. "The air temperature is within a degree of that, that's the standard."

The concern about the pool's temperature was in such debate that some locals brought it to town council's attention three times.

"I've heard from the Aqua-size folks a little bit who've said, 'Boy, It's cold in here. The lane swimmers go, 'Man, it's really warm in here," he continued. "I heard someone last week say that, 'The shallow end is beautiful but oh man, is it ever cold."

Drohomerski can't confirm any of the complainants about how hot or cold the water is, but can confirm that the water, all throughout the pool, is averaging around the same temperature.

"There's more work to be done," the CAO concluded. "One of the questions I have is, do we move the thermometer around, you know?"

He says he's doing everything he can to resolve any issues swimmers may be experiencinge.
