Community pool house - freeze protection heater?

Hello all - just became Operations guy for my subdivision's HOA board. We're in Atlanta, and the question involves our community pool bathroom/pump house. In previous years they've put portable electric heaters in the bathrooms to prevent pipe freezing. But I don't like that approach, for safety concerns.

There's mens/womens bathrooms, each with 2 stalls, and a small pump room. All walled into separate rooms of course. My first thought are wall/ceiling mounted 240V fan heaters, with thermostats set around 36. 3 heaters could be about $250 each.

Suggestions for other cost-effective approaches to the problem? Temps here average 34 during the winter, but there are of course cold snaps so single digits aren't unheard of.

here, we use electric wall heaters. We get a bit colder then you do.
