Baggers what temperature do you set your Jacuzzi to?

For years I went with 100 deg F. Shock getting in but I got used to it and sometimes even went to 101 - 102. Somehow in my old age I can't take any more than ~95 now or else I'll actually break into a sweat.

105 is a recipe for disaster. 105 + drunken old people = tragic boiled death. In the summer I just turn off the heater and it sits at about 75 for a quick refreshing dip.

I think your thermostat is off if 102 is too hot. That's only 3 degrees above body temperature. That should only feel mildly warm.

Yeah, have you ever checked it with a cooking thermometer? Easy test...Boil some water, temp should read 212F/100C.....If it's off by more than 2 degrees then you have calibration issues...But unless your thermostat is set for C instead of F, 105 should be a piece of cake...They don't start feeling "too hot" until about 110F. I was in vegas last year and the AIR was 115F the pool was 99F...

101 in the summer... 103 in the winter.

You can last for about 10 minutes at 105, after that, it gets dangerous.

Remember, if you're running 105 fever, you're about delirious, and in danger of cooking your brain.

Mine is 99-100. Winter, spring & fall. Obviously in summer, not necessary.

Well I'll be a son of a sea-cook. 96 = 100

As suspected...We deal with this stuff at work...we have things that have to be within 1 or 2C of a specific temperature for the test to work...When quality control checks them out or rejects them we get them back with a little +2C or -3C when the temp display isn't reading correctly...

I spent many years in the modelling community and then many years in the measurement (laboratory) community. The modellers look for validation from the lab rats because it's "actual real-world data". The lab rats look for validation from the modellers because it's "untainted by experimental error". They're all full of shit. Maybe the paramount lesson I've learned in life is that nobody knows shit and they're all full of shit. NEVER believe any "expert"; they're all faggots.
