Water is sprayed onto the pool surface, creating a ripple effect, so the diver can see the surface. Without it, the water takes on a glass-like appearance, and all you can see is the bottom of the pool. The diver needs to be able to spot the water surface in order to enter the water correctly in the vertical position.

How can you lower the temperature of a large outdoor pool?

I have seen many pools with spray nozzles that spray return water as a mist over the surface of the pool. If the circulation pump is turned on at night when the outside air temp drops, the misted water releases some of its heat into the atmosphere, and it falls into the pool at a cooler temp. The best way to cool your water in the summer is to buy fountains that plug into the outlets that carry water from the pump. Besides being famous for cooling the water, they are pretty.
