I have lived in Indiana for a few years now.
I recently laid down some roots in Evansville. The area is beautiful, up and coming and a great place to raise a family. My husband and I couldn’t be happier to stay in Evansville. We thought that the weather was mild enough not to warrant a pool. However, in Indiana it does get pretty hot. From June to September it can get pretty heated. You are expecting temperatures in the high 80s and sometimes 90s. My husband and I at first just tried to leave it be. The Park Aquatic Center has an olympic sized pool and a family pool. Anytime we were hot we could go there. A local city pool isn’t really ideal for long term use though. My husband and I decided enough is enough, we are getting a pool. You can’t just slap a pool the next day sadly. We had to get a loan and wait almost a year for it actually to be dug and put in. Even though the weather is hot, it does tend to get hot. Our pool installer highly advocated getting a pool heater. We decided to nix it in order to save money. Now it is a year later and my husband and I regret it. Thankfully after some research I realize we can still get heating. Our home has a boiler system. The boiler can have piping hooked to it and then connect to the pool to serve as a heater. A boiler system can be a hot water heater, snowmelt system and even a towel rack heater too.
