Surface temp near 100* !!! #523567 07/13/2020 9:17 PM
by Flame
3:30 this afternoon and after 3 solid days in mid 90"s air temp I used my floating swimming pool thermometer I have always used to test surface temp. In 3 foot of water it read 98.8* surface temp!!! Can that even be right?? I know at home,my neighbors house, and at my wifes office everyone has their central air set at 70* but the best any of us are doing right now indoor is 77*...AC running full blast!! Are my water temps possible?? I do have muddy water and I have always understood muddy water warms quicker than clear water but there is enough I don't know to start a whole new world!!

$3 pool thermometer from Walmart (the floating type) tied to some good cord with a large nut to make it sink. I also tied a small Gatorade bottle to the cord about 12 feet from the thermometer (my pond is 10 foot deep). This keeps the cord off the bottom to avoid snags and would make for retrieval if I accidentally let go of the cord when throwing it out.
