We all know how great is is to have an indoor pool or to visit your local indoor swimming pool center, for leisure, exercise, swimming lessons or to just spend time with the family. It’s great until that damp chlorine smell hits you in the face! This can be most evident when visiting indoor public pools. Have you ever stopped to think about what that smell is and how harmful it maybe to your health and the surroundings? High humidity levels not only create an uncomfortable environment they can cause a number of other issues.
Indoor pools release moisture into the air and this moisture can easily pollute your environment with mold mildew and fowl odors. This can be destructive and corrosive to your pool room surroundings. Moisture can form in extremely hard to clean crevices, building components, fittings and in particular metal and concrete.
Lets not forget how bathers who suffer from allergies or asthma something like a pool room that has a musty odor from mold and mildew and pool chemicals, this could have serious affects on their health!
Have a look at this DewPoint evaluation chart based on a heated indoor pool. The room has an ambient temperature: 30C, Relative humidity: 80%. You can see the dew point will then be 27. You can see the results, aging, mechanical damage, mold and corrosive. See the charts saved results and its not until the ambient temperature is approximately 5C that we can see a drop in the mold, all others are still present.
Its really important not only for the indoor pool but also for the room the pool is located in, to maintain the correct humidity. A dehumidifier is the solution in helping you maintain the humidity and provide a comfortable environment for your swimmers and your pool room.
How a pool dehumidifier works
The purpose of a Dehumidifier is to remove excess moisture in the air from the indoor pool room and still without loosing the warmth in the room. The warm moist air is drawn through the base of the unit and passes over a cold coil to remove the moisture and chemicals, pollutants caused from pool activity. The air then passes through a hot coil which replaces and increases the heat in the air. The result – warmer drier healthy comfortable clean air.
