As a result of the energy crisis, the water in many swimming pools has become colder.

Now the first baths have raised the temperatures again.

In the indoor swimming pools in the Ruhr area cities of Kamen, Bönen and Bergkamen, but also in Trier in Rhineland-Palatinate and in Neunkirchen in Saarland, the water temperature is now back to its old level.

Stadtwerke München raised the temperature again in two pools at the beginning of December.

"We've been hearing lately that the water temperature is increasing again in some places," said the spokeswoman for the German Bathing Society of the dpa news agency.

So far, these have been isolated cases, but "with a view to the 2023 season, the trend in the industry is towards relaxation".

According to experts, just two degrees cooler water can result in energy savings of 25 percent.

The GSW municipal utilities report that by lowering the temperature in the swimming pools in Kamen, Bönen and Bergkamen, “a significant amount” of gas has been saved, but above all children, parents and participants in fitness courses have complained about it.
